    Did you know that Tanzanite was discovered in 1967 by a tailor from India (he was looking for Rubies, but found something new). With the same blue/violet hue as Sapphire, quality is a function of clarity and colour. Pale, cloudy, Tanzanite is inexpensive, but strong blue coloured transparent Tanzanite in larger beads is rare and the price reflects that rarity. In common with many gemstone formations, you find material with excellent colour and clarity, but a higher proportion of natural flaws...
    Did you know that Tanzanite was discovered in 1967 by a tailor from India (he was looking for Rubies, but found something new). With the same blue/violet hue as Sapphire, quality is a function of clarity and colour. Pale, cloudy, Tanzanite is inexpensive, but strong blue coloured transparent Tanzanite in larger beads is rare and the price reflects that rarity. In common with many gemstone formations, you find material with excellent colour and clarity, but a higher proportion of natural flaws and inclusions. Cut as gems in the traditional way, the result would be small faceted stones and a lot of wastage. Better by far (we think) to preserve this high quality material with its natural look which adds texture and complexity. And as someone once said, quantity has a quality all of its own. Length 48cm, largest bead 14mm. We don't often buy Tanzanite, but we know a bargain when we see one and this row was (and is) spectacularly good value. Do a little online comparison for something with the same colour/clarity and bead size - you'll see what we mean. About 314 carats.
