Tanzanite is the name given to transparent blue zoisite. It is quite a ‘new’ stone, having been discovered in Tanzania by the Masai tribe in 1967. Tanzanite crystals have been growing for millions of years in deposits on the inside of metamorphic hills on a vast plain in the shadow of Kilimanjaro. They were noticed one day by a group of Masai shepherds who noticed the sparkling crystals lying in the sun. They were introduced to the jewellery world in 1969 by Tiffany and Co., who named them after their discovery location to add to their exotic appeal.
The Masai believe that Tanzanite is the stone of birth because of its blue colour, and they give tanzanite to their wives at the birth of their first-born children.
