It’s December, which means there are a bunch of December birthdays coming up! The birthstone for December is tanzanite.

Tanzanite is relatively new to the gemstone world. It was originally discovered by a Masai tribesman. The tribesman hoped that he had stumbled on a new sapphire deposit, but it turned out to be tanzanite. Today, tanzanite is only mined from the hills of Tanzania.

This stone became instantly popular due to its vivid blue-violet color, high clarity, and the ability to be able to be cut into large stones. It’s a popular alternative to sapphires. Tanzanite also has pleochroism. Pleochroism is the ability of a stone to change colors based on the crystal direction it’s being viewed from.

A deep saturated blue color similar to a sapphire is considered the most valuable color for tanzanite. Cushion and oval cut stones are the most common. The smaller the stone, the less saturated the color of the stone is.
