What is Tanzanite ?
Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967 in Tanzania, East Africa. Its history comes from the Massai tribe. In the 1960s, Marelani Hills, a village located in Tanzania was hit by a violent tornado. Frightened, the Massai nomads left their country. When they returned to their home, they found an astounding amount of brilliant blues stones.
A few years later, Tiffany & Co renamed the Zoizoite stone found in Tanzania: Tanzanite, paying tribute to its unique place of extraction. In 2002, the American Gem Trade Association annouced that Tanzanite joined Turquoise for the December gemstones.
What is Emerald ?
Emerald is a precious gemstone and a variety of the mineral beryl colored green by trace amounts of chromium and sometimes vanadium. Beryl has a hardness of 7.5–8 on the Mohs scale. Emeralds have been treasured as adornments in the form of jewelry for centuries.
Emerald crystals are hexagonal in nature. Large Emerald deposits are currently mined in Colombia, Brazil, and Zambia. Emeralds are mined throughout the world (Pakistan, Afghanistan, Russia, Australia, United States) but these are the three major sources. The Zambian and Brazilian Emeralds may be colored due to the presence of vanadium, whereas Colombian Emeralds usually achieve their coloration from the presence of chromium.
