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.

About Spinel

The beauty, brilliance, and durability of spinel make it the perfect gemstone to wear every day and in any type of jewelry. Spinel is available in exotic locations throughout the world in a wide array of colors, including pink, red, lavender, purple, blue, and black.

Since spinel is an 8 on the Mohs' scale of hardness, it can be faceted to a brilliant sparkle and is difficult to chip and scratch. Historically, spinel has been often confused with other similarly colored gemstones. The high brilliance and reflective nature that faceted black spinel exhibits makes it easily mistaken for black diamonds. Because spinel can be found in many of the same mining areas that produce sapphire and ruby, it has often been mistaken for these beauties. In fact, several fine historically important "rubies," including the "Black Prince's Ruby" in the British Crown Jewels, is actually red spinel.

Tanzanite, Pink & Black Spinel Convertible Sterling Band Ring 3 5 3 3
Creative I appreciate the creativity of this design - appears to be 2 rings in one - great for when I'm traveling and can match the color to my outfit for the day. Pink Spinel side is beautiful, sparkles. The tansanite side is a bit disappointing - stones are very pale, really more clear/gray than blue. Like the stack look, and also comfortable to wear. 04-20-13
Beautiful I read the first one star review and completely disagree....when I purchased mine it was VERY clear as to the "Unique" design of the ring. How the spinel bands flipped to make 2 different rings...it was VERY CLEAR as to how this ring worked. Thats what drew me to it, however, I've had it for about a month and find it FUN but very pretty and is comfortable as well. Being able to "flip" the black spinel is nice, 2 rings in one. You change the ring with the mood !! I thought I would use the Tanzanite 1/2 most but I LOVE the Pink with the Black. Just pops. Its a lovely band ring and if you are at all interested, give it a try. I don't think you could be disappointed. The Pink Spinel & the Tanzanite sides are very beautifully matched in color as well. If you really don't like, you can return. I've just fallen in love with Black Spinel, ordered 2 in the past 12 hrs ( 1 w/turquoise & 1 huge amethyst & spinel) and I know they will be beautiful as well. 04-17-13
total disappointment maybe i didnt understand the write up.....maybe it needs to be clearer....so here goes.....this is one ring.....the center band is half tanzanite and half pink spinel....the colurs are perfectly matched. the black spinel part is 2 half circles....they have a hinge, so you can flip them from the tanzanite side to the pink spinel side. i thought the black spinel part was 2 circles, and the tanzanite and pink spinel was an insert, so you could take it out, and put other bands in between the black spinel. im hoping this description is clearer so that people dont make the same mistake i did..... 04-03-13
