Tanzanite is becoming increasingly recognised as an heirloom due to its very limited supply and rarity.

Tanzanite is believed to have been formed about 585 million years ago, but it was only discovered in 1967. and credited to Manuel de Souza, a local tailor of Indian origin. Tanzanite is the official birthstone for the month of december. Tanzanite is also the suggested gift for the 24th wedding anniversary. Tanzanite has been attributed with qualities of good luck and prosperity, and associated with celebrations of new life and new beginnings.

Tanzanite is said to have many mystical and healing powers. It is believed to uplift and open the heart, and is also believed to assist in metaphysical healing.

Tanzanite’s only known source in the world is a 4km strip of land near Mount Kilimanjaro, northern Tanzania. This single, limited source renders tanzanite at least a thousand times more rare than diamonds. Though more affordable than diamonds, and around a third of the price of sapphires, tanzanite is an extremely valuable gem, with tanzanite rings, tanzanite necklaces and tanzanite earrings becoming investment pieces, appreciating every year.

Because tanzanite is only found in one small area in the world, and it is unlikely to ever be found anywhere else, gemologists believe that, in the next 10 to 20 years, no more tanzanite will be found. After it becomes depleted, there won’t be any more first time owners of the gem, and all tanzanite will become precious heirlooms.
