While Tanzanite might not yet be the stuff of legends, being discovered a mere 40 years ago, this outstanding gem has already attracted more gossip and attention than any modern-day celebrity.
A well known New York jeweler company in October 1968, remarked that it was undoubtedly ‘the most beautiful blue stone discovered in over 2 000 years’. Experts rightly called it the gemstone of 20th century.
Displaying the beautiful property of polychromaticity, Tanzanite exhibits different colors when viewed from different angles. It might appear purple from one angle, blue from the second, and yellow brownish from the third angle.
Many Hollywood stars and starlets have also adorned themselves with tanzanite. Stars like Salma Hayek, Elle Mac Pherson , Natsha McElhone, Cate Blanchett , Bond girl and golden globe best actress winner Teri Hatcher, and many others have been spotted wearing tanzanite.
