Experience Tanzanite in Arusha; Its history, mystery, and rarity

Embark upon a journey that started over 585 million years ago, culminating in the discovery of one of the rarest gemstones on the planet “Tanzanite!”

Only found in the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, this vibrant gemstone is totally unique to Tanzania. Known as the “Gemstone of the generation” due to its rarity in supply, Tanzanite is truly special.

Displaying incredible blue and violet hues, it was first discovered in 1967. The famous New York jewelers “Tiffany & Co” gave it its name, declaring it to be, “the most beautiful blue stone to be discovered in 2,000 years”.

At The Tanzanite Experience, we strive to honor this exceptional stone as part of our African heritage.  Through our museums, we are committed to education, and through both our physical and online stores, we guarantee to provide you with the highest-quality, fully-certified Tanzanite on earth.
