Third largest Tanzanite Discovered

TanzaniteOne Limited, a gemstone producer and seller, recently announced the discovery of 12,100 carat high gem quality tanzanite. The gemstone is the largest gemstone to be mined in the 10 years of mining history of the company and the third largest high quality tanzanite in the world.

At present the stone is undergoing grading analysis to confirm its color and clarity. The source mine is located in Simanjiro district of Tanzania.

For those who didn’t know, Tanzania is the only place in the world where Tanznites are found. The scarcity of resource makes this gem one of the rarest of gems, even rarer than diamonds.
