Several hundred million years ago, Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain erupted. During this violent earth-shaking event, a magical process was beginning beneath the mountain’s slopes.

The intense heat and pressure caused a number of things to happen. Heated ground waters circulated through rock fractures, dissolving minerals from the surrounding rocks and redepositing them in open spaces like fractures. Here as the rock folded with time, the heat and pressure grew to a level where it was possible for Tanzanite to form. This remained constant for the many millions of years between that time and the time it was discovered by man. It is a geological process known as metamorphism

 

Hundreds of millions of years later it was chiseled from the crevice within which it had lain for so long and carried to the surface by miners in Block D of the Merelani Tanzanite mining area, the only place in the world where this beautiful gemstone is found.

Cut by master cutters in our Tanzanian based lapidary on Goloindoi road in Arush, Tanzania and then brought to our main offices for photography and laser inscription. A journey of 550 million years has paused here.
