The world’s only Tanzanite Museum is located in its flagship store in the heart of Arusha. Visitors not only get to see and feel tanzanite stones and jewellery here, they get to understand the history of how tanzanite was discovered, experience the whole mining process through a replicated mine shaft and further appreciate the grading process and how tanzanite is appraised through the 4 C’s grading system: ‘Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight’.
The Tanzanite Experience offers a wide selection of stones and jewellery with all gemstones cut and shaped by professional Tanzanians who have vast expertise in this highly skilled area. In addition the stores house a special collection of necklaces and earrings from the Maasai Woman’s Project, a local initiative empowering Maasai tribeswoman from the mining area of Merelani with their own business venture. This is one of many projects and charities that The Tanzanite Experience promote and support.
The Tanzanite Experience is unique in that it is the only company in Tanzania with direct access to a certification lab, which ensures that every gemstone sold is fully certified under laboratory conditions by geological experts and has its own unique certificate number and a certificate detailing the specifics of the stone. The certificates are internationally recognized.
