Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone which emanates a magnificent deep blue hue. Native to Tanzania, the blue variety of the Zoisite gemstone consists of calcium aluminium silicate and is one of the most coveted gemstones known to man.
Personifying unconventional elegance, the Tanzanite Stone emits an unblemished ultramarine to light violet-blue shade and is valued globally for its captivating wonder. The most desired colour of the Tanzanite stone is the blue surrounded by a delicate hint of purple. Depending on the angle that Tanzanite is admired from, sometimes the stone appears to be purple, brownish-yellow or blue. Tanzanite was formed around 500 million years ago where a unique set of temperatures and pressurized conditions inside the earth’s environment allowed for small Tanzanite crystals to develop. The combination of the chemical, Vanadium fused these crystals into larger formations, resulting in the mesmerizing miracle that we have come to appreciate today, The captivating, natural wonder does, however bear a brownish, yellow component when in its raw state which spoils the beauty of those extravagant colours that have made Tanzanite the unique creation that is now so deeply cherished. Careful heating of the stone allows for the component to disappear once temperatures rise to 500 degrees Celsius.
Cut into every imaginable shape and size, Tanzanite is used globally in jewellery creations to show off its magnetizing allure and beautiful displays of colour, as light dances across its glassy surfaces and angular steps. Our C W Sellors collection exudes a mesmerizing aura through a number of inspirational designs that bestow a level of beauty.
