About Tanzanite

About Tanzanite

Tanzanite gets its name from its origin of Tanzania. In 1967, Manuel d'Souza discovered this extraordinary variety of the mineral zoisite while searching for sapphires. The Tanzania mines are located at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro.

Widely seen as a geological phenomenon, this precious gemstone formed in the earth's surface over 585 million years ago during the pan-African event (the shifting of continents). It's also trichroic in nature, meaning that it radiates blue, violet, and burgundy from its crystallographic axes, depending upon the stone cut.

A commemorative gemstone for the 24th wedding anniversary as well as December birthdays, tanzanite is thought to balance emotions and clear the heart chakra, helping people accept change. Ranking a 6 or 7 on Moh's hardness scale, it's considered to be a soft gemstone and more fragile than sapphires. To clean tanzanite, use a gentle detergent and a soft brush. Allow ample drying time before storing. Ultra-sonic devices and steam-based cleaners are not recommended.

Beautiful Earrings I think the earlier reviewers' comments regarding the dark color of the tanzanite stones in these earrings must have had an effect. The ones I received just recently were exacftly the same color as the picture shows. They are really lovely earrings and go with both lavenders and light blues in my wardrobe. I had been eyeing them for awhile and was delighted when they went on clearance. 12-27-13
Very disappointed The earrings went back immediately. The stones were very dark. I don't know how the photograph was done, but it looks like it was back-lighted to produce that glow. The stones on mine were so dark, it was difficult to tell the color. 11-23-12
exquisite these are petite earrings in the Ripka universe, but chock full of attention to detail and eye-catching design. they look lovely and sparkle-y on the ear. i took away a star for an ongoing problem with Ripka earrings: the post on the pierced earring is too thin and can bend. 12-02-11
BEAUTIFUL EARRINGS TANZANITE WAS NOT Love all things Judith Ripka, and really loved the style and fit of these earrings, however I was very disappointed in the poor quality of the tanzanite stones. Appearance is closer to an iolite in color. They were not even a close match in color and clarity. Needless to say, for the price, they were returned. 11-27-11
