The shining green tsavorite is a young gemstone with a very long geological history.

Its home is the East-African bushland along the border between Kenya and Tanzania.

It is a fluorine aluminium silicate and comes in yellow, yellow-brown, honey-yellow, flax, brown, green, blue, light blue, red and pink ... and sometimes it has no colour at all.

Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone.

It occurs in only one place worldwide. Its blue, surrounded by a fine hint of purple, is a wonderful colour.
