Tanzanite

As Beguiling as Elizabeth Taylor’s Eyes

Iconic Hollywood movie star and actress Elizabeth Taylor was famously known to love diamonds, but another gemstone may more fully capture the true color and beauty of her eyes. Tanzanite, named after the African country that is the only place in the world known to produce the fabulous gemstone, is rich bluish-violet with hints of purple. Tanzanite, the birthstone for December, is actually a blue variety of the gemstone zoisite. Due to its rarity and unparalleled beauty, it is one of the most coveted gemstones in the world. Upon its relatively recent discovery in 1967, tanzanite was celebrated by knowledgeable specialists as the “gemstone of the 20th century.” The gemstone’s elevated status has not changed since then.
