Tanzanite – It is one of the most sought after gemstones in the world, most especially in the US market, which is still regarded as the largest gem market in terms of sales. Tanzanite is a stone many people are interested in and love to have it with them. Due to Tanzanite’s uncommonness and attractiveness it has been touted as an excellent investment gemstone. It is one of the world’s rarest gemstones, being found in only one place in the whole world – a place called Merelani.
The supply of this stone is becoming increasingly limited as the worlds only source is mined recklessly to keep up with this greedy demand. The result is that the stone is becoming increasingly difficult to find, especially in the finer qualities. In the coming years Tanzanite prices will increase substantially. Already there has been a threefold increase in just 6 years. Therefore, many factors combine to point to the likelihood of Tanzanite becoming one of the real gem investments of our generation.
Amethyst – Amethyst is a violet or purpose variety of quartz. The name comes from the Greek and essentially means, “not drunk”. As purple has always been considered a royal color it comes as no surprise that the amethyst gem stone has been so much in demand by royalty throughout history. Amethyst can occur as long prismatic crystals that have a six sided pyramid at either end or can form as druses that are crystalline crusts that only show the pointed terminations. As a mineral specimen, amethyst is popular for its color and nice crystal shapes that produce a handsome, purple, sparkling cluster.
We believe that amethyst is one of the most beautiful of the colored gemstones, particularly in its better qualities. Most amethyst gemstones on the market today are heat-treated to produce a deeper color. Heat treating is permanent and these stones will not fade over time. Amethyst powers include: dreams, healing, peace, love, spiritual upliftment, courage, psychism, protection against thieves, and happiness.
