We come across various unusual varieties of things in life, which make such an impact that we don’t want to forget it. In the gems and jewelry arena also we come across a wide array of different shapes, sizes and hues of gemstones, which we intend to own no matter what come.
Elegant looking Tanzanite beads are yet another respectable variety of gemstone which we can get in different shades. Even American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) is backing this gemstone and has described Tanzanite, as a “compelling blend of affluent purples and blues with a smooth penetration of color unlike any other gem”. This gemstone has been a member of the zoisite family which was discovered around 1800. But the prevailing tanzanite (blue variety) was identified only in 1967. Nevertheless it started its commercial journey during the year 1969. No doubt this gemstone has also other varieties like green, yellow and pink which too were from zoisite family but they hardly became popular. But now-a-days tanzanite in hues like blue, purple and salmon has been considered as the rare semi precious gemstone and is on the popularity chart. Specifically this gemstone contains blue color with a tint of purple. But, the gem quality tanzanite had been discovered from near Mount Kilimanjaro from Merelani Hill area.
It will be a fault if we don’t mention facts about how tanzanite obtained its name. As the name suggest Tanzanite acquired its name from East Africa’s state of Tanzania. Tanzanite beads have been considered as a precious variety which hardly gets treated. But if you find one, it won’t come anywhere near to the original gemstone. The genuine variety of tanzanite beads displays bluish lavender color with amazing deep tone having secondary flashes of red and pink hues.
Today, the popularity of this gemstone has become so rampant that it has joined the club of “big four” namely rubies, diamonds, sapphires and emeralds. Earlier, you could find the smaller version of tanzanite beads in necklaces, earrings, rings and pendants. But now it has been available in bigger sizes also.
Such is the popularity of this gemstone outside Africa that this gemstone has been one of the five top selling colored gemstones in the world particularly in United States.
No matter if it is a wedding celebration or an evening party, tanzanite beads when incorporated with other gemstones like diamond etc., will showcase your persona.
