Tanzanite, the startling blue gemstone with flashes of red and violet, has been described by the president of Tiffany’s as 'the most beautiful gemstone discovered in 2000 years'.

Unlike almost every other regularly used gemstone, Tanzanite was only found as recently as the 1960s and even now is only mined in a tiny corner of the east African country of Tanzania.

Tanzanite Colors

Tanzanite, it could be argued, has the most beautiful blue color in the world of gemstones - even the mighty sapphire can look a bit pale next to a tanzanite.

The blue can range from a light sky blue all the way to a deep midnight blue and the appearance can be enhanced by intense flares of red and violet as the gemstones move this way and that.

Tanzanite Price

If you have done any research into the pricing of gemstones you are sure to have read the old saying 'color is king'. Tanzanite is no different and the only color for Tanzanite is blue - the bluer the better!

Deeply saturated blue colors are more valued than lighter stones. They are more plentiful and therefore a bit less expensive. These delicate subtle pastel colors can be very appealing.

As a tanzanite gemstone is turned from one angle to another it can show different colors - other shades of blue, reds, violets and even greens can appear. This is due to a phenomenon called pleochroism and a skilled cutter will ensure that the most exciting colors flash when viewing the gemstone from the top. When you buy tanzanite gemstones this is something to keep in mind.

Carat Weight

Tanzanite is available in a wide range of carat weights. All sizes can be beautiful but it often takes a gemstone of 5 carats and above to show real depth and saturation of color.

If we take a medium color tanzanite as an example, smaller 1 - 2 carat stones will cost between $110 and $350 per carat but gemstones over 5 carats could rise to $200 - $600 per carat depending on color, clarity and cut.

What jewelry is Tanzanite suitable for?

Tanzanite is rated at 6.5 to 7 on Mohs hardness scale. This makes it tough enough for most jewelry items. We would advice caution for daily wear as it could get scratched and scuffed although pendants and earrings should not be a problem.

Its vibrant blue-violet hue pairs well with both white and yellow metals, making it a great design choice for rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. Tanzanite's unique color also makes it a popular choice for statement pieces or designer jewelry that stands out from the crowd. Our Tanzanite for sale comes in almost every shape and size you may need for your jewelry

I love your selection of gems. My only complaing is I wish I could put in a page number to return to that page.When there are over 60 pages of gems it is hard to return to a page with a gem I am considering.

over the experience was similar to other sites i have used. The only real note I have is the checkout experience was tedious and discriminatory, i wouldn't accept visa gift cards, which not only have guaranteed funds but help protect from misuse of personal information, but would not accept my visa b/c it is a prepaid card. I don't have bank account and I have been using the prepaid card for years without issue so this was disappointing to me. I feel safer using reputable gem sites rather than amazon or ebay (I have been sold fake gems with fake certs on both), but not being able to use my own valid legitimate funds and having to find a friend to buy for me b/c I use a non-bank card like 40% of the country is insulting.

I have actually done business with them before and was quite satisfied with them then.My Mother collected turtle items and when I saw the Mother of Pearl turtle...I just thought of her and decided to buy it. It's even tinier than I thought, but so adorable!The gemstones I bought are for jewelry for my daughter's birthday.

So many gorgeous stones! The only "complaint" I have is it's difficult to visualize sizes in mm. Perhaps some way to compare in inches?It has been a long time since I bought stones from Gem select, but the process wasn't too difficult.

I was looking for ammolite for my husband. Other websites are not always clear about whether they have genuine ammolite or simulated ammolite. I have purchased from GemSelect before and trust that the stones are genuine. Finding the stones I want is easy, and I love all of the search filter options!
