All About Tanzanite
Tanzanianite is a violet-blue variety of zoisites that is formed by low amounts of vanadium. Tanzanite is an epidot mineral group. Tanzanite deposit has primarily been found in Tanzania in a relatively small mine area (7 km 4.3 m in length 2 km (1.23 mi) wide. Tanzanites have remarkably strong trichroism and alternate blue, violet, and black depending on the crystal orientation. Tanzanite can appear different colours in different lighting settings.
Tanzanite has become a popular colour stone today for gems and jewellery markets. It's surprising because it was discovered in the 1960s, while all other popular stones are now widely recognized for centuries. The unique bluish violet color has become popular with more people gaining knowledge of it. Popularity will expand as colored stones become commonplace for purchase in developing markets. Despite its unique properties, it has become an exceptionally rare stone. The known deposits can be found only in small areas in the north of Tanzania. There are only a few gemstones that have such limited availability, making Tanzanite crystal a truly rare gem.
How big are Tanzanite Gems?
Tanzanite differs from most other gems because smaller stones are more plentiful than larger stones. Tanzanian tanzanites weigh less than 5 grams. The rarest stone is 50 carat. Generally smaller pieces can be cut to a calibrated size and are intended to be used by manufacturers of artisan jewellery pieces. Typically stones with superior colours make a great piece of jewellery. Large stone with exceptional naturally blue colour is incredibly rare. Typically this item is acquired from the collectors, museum, or investor. Sometimes they are employed for custom-made jewellery. Generally, tanzanites are larger in size than diamonds in colour.
Tell me the meaning of tanzanite?
Tanzanite is a name used by Tiffany and Company to make specimens of zoitium gemstones with a blue colour. Tiffany could sell the materials as "blue zoisite" or "golden zoisite," but the company hoped the name Tanzanite would generate more interest among consumers and be more easily marketable. The rare gem was named "tanzanite" as the largest tanzanite deposits have been discovered in Northern Tanzania. This is an indication that this gem has a restricted location. Tanzanite mines are situated about 8 square miles in the Merceliani Hills near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro and in Arusha City.
Tanzanite price stability
During the Tanzanian price period prices rose and declined. The price increases were mainly caused because there were a restricted variety of mining facilities and the geographical location of the Tanzanian site reserves on earth. Tanzania's decisions and regulations will affect supply and prices in a short time. Tanzanite has no price insulation as many gemstones can be extracted across multiple countries. Flooding or mining problems can affect supply and costs immediately. It is also believed that illegal mining and stealing are increasing tanzanite prices.
What causes the color of tanzanite?
The bluish violet tanzanite colour is created by tiny amounts of vanadium inside zoisites' mineral structures. The oxidation of vanadium is altered as the temperature is raised to 450 C and the changes result in a blue violet colour. The heat treatment of Tanzanite is extremely mild in comparison to the treatment commonly used for gemstones like diamonds and sapphires. These gems can be heated to temperatures of around 1500 Celsius for days or weeks. Today, nearly all of the gems being sold as "tanzanite" have a blue color that has been produced or enhanced by heating. Small amounts of tanzanite on the market have a natural blue color that resulted from heat metamorphism alone without any treatment by humans. Some gemstone and jewellery buyers look for naturally blue untreated tanzanite when purchasing, which is held in high regard by certain gemstone and jewelry investors .Rarely, gem-quality tanzanite will heat to a green primary hue, almost always accompanied by a blue or violet secondary hue. These green tanzanite stones have a high value in the collector market, but are seldom of interest to commercial buyers.
Tanzanite Among Other Blue Gems
Tanzanite occurs in a wide range of tones and saturations that compete well with sapphire, blue topaz, and aquamarine.. Although they're all blue stones, each has its own uniqueness to them. Tanzanite is produced in several colors and color saturations which attract virtually all buyers who are into blue gems. Tanzanite gemstones can range in colour from lavender to vivid blue.
A Modern Gem and Birthstone
Although almost every world's popular gemstone is recognised and used for centuries, it wasn't discovered for commercial use before the 1960s. It is now the second most popular blue gem after sapphire. These gemstones have only appeared in a very small quantity in a few centuries but have been found and have remained popular with consumers over time. It has been largely achieved by Tiffanys promotion and the beautiful blue hue of tanzanite. A major trend of popularity prompted Tanzanite to become one of the modern birthstones for December.
Pleochroism in Tanzanite
Tanzanite are pleochroic gems. Pleochroism is an optical property where the material appears to vary in colour in various optical directions. Some tanzanite samples can appear a vivid blue when seen from a different direction or can be purple if seen from other directions. Pleochroism is complicated by cutting tanzanite but also offers opportunities.
Teach the world about Tanzanite
As tanzanite was first faceted in 1967, jewelers and consumers knew little about its existence. Tiffany and Company launched tanzanite education programs as part of an educational campaign. Tiffany developed educational material for educating consumers on gemstones and created materials for jewelers to understand and explain its qualities. Before launching an online sale of an undiscovered gemstone a person needs to be trained to do so in order to complete a transaction.
Durability of Tanzanite
Tanzanites are an amazing gem. The beauty of the property requires special attention. Tanzanite is ideally suited for jewellery pieces that are resistant to scratches. There are fewer uses for rings. Many jewellers recommend the tanzanite ring as an everyday accessory and not as dressy. Hardness consists of resisting a gem from scratching. Tanzanites have a hardness of 6.5 on the Mohs Hardness scale.
Tanzanite's Interesting Colors
The minerals in zoisite naturally come in a variety of hues that range from grey to gray-brown to pink. Known as "tanzanites", the color of zoisites ranges from purple and pink to purple. The color variation name hasn't been common. The name ruby is used in red to slightly purplish red specimens of Corundum and amethyst is used in purple specimens of quartz. Each mineral is present in different colour ranges.
