Going Down a Tanzanite Mine

Tanzanite, named after its country of origin, Tanzania, is the only place on the globe to mine for the gemstone. Tanzanite is one of the most prized gemstones on the market and is said to be one thousand times rarer than diamonds! Tanzanite is one of four birthstones for December.
