Tanzanite properties & Myths
Our tanzanite stones are graded using the “Tanzanite Quality Scale,” an internationally recognized system that allows a stone’s color and quality to be accurately described, giving assurance to those who want to be sure about the quality and authenticity of their tanzanite. In a similar way to diamonds, tanzanite is graded according to the 4C’s : Color, Clarity, Cut and Carat Weight. The higher the combination of these characteristics, the rarer and more valuable the stone.
Whether the gem is being offered to consumer’s at a traditional jewelry store’s counter, an internet shopping site, or on a television broadcast the journey always involves a great deal of effort. Countless hours of labor are needed for a gem to grow from mine to the end customer.
