Tanzanite is the Birthstone for December

Tanzanite is an exotic vivid blue gemstone, kissed by purple hues. Legend has it that tanzanite was first discovered when brown crystals lying on the dry earth were caught in a fire set by lightning. Masai herders driving cattle in the area noticed the beautiful blue color picked-up the crystals and became the first tanzanite collectors. Tanzanite occurs in a variety of shapes and sizes and also provides a striking assortment of tonal qualities. It is mined only in Tanzania at the feet of the majestic Mount Kilimanjaro.
