World’s Prettiest Blue Gem
Found in the Shadow of Mt Kilimanjaro
This rare gem was first found in 1967 at the base of Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Tanzanite is found in one tiny plot of land in Tanzania. It is estimated to run out by 2035. The gem is rare. We have fewer than twelve pieces a year that meet our color, clarity, and precision cutting standards. We are particular; choosing only gems we would give to someone we truly love. This ring is one our favorite pieces of Tanzanite jewelry this year.
You’ve seen photographs of Mt Kilimanjaro. Perhaps you’ve even thought of climbing the mountain. At 19,341 feet, it is the tallest mountain in Africa. It’s the seventh tallest mountain in the world. Mt Kilimanjaro has snow and glaciers on top and is just 200 miles from the equator. Geologists have speculated that the formation of Mt Kilimanjaro was responsible for the creation of Tanzanite.
Lady’s Big, Lovely
Our Mt Kilimanjaro Tanzanite ring is simple. It’s a cushion-cut gem weighing 1.40 carats. Its color is pure blue and it is surrounded by a simple sloping wide band of gold and a simple shank of gold surrounding the finger. Tanzanite’s wearability is similar to amethyst, with a hardness of 6 – 7. We recommend you not go mountain climbing with the ring. Tanzanite is a gem of fine dining and light wear.
Why We Love Tanzanite
Because it’s blue. We love blue. Everyone loves blue, and it sells for a fraction of what a fine blue sapphire would sell for. When carefully chosen, a Tanzanite is a breathtakingly beautiful gem. These two pieces are amazing.

Mt Kilimanjaro is the world’s 7th tallest mountain. It is located in the northeast corner of Tanzania, 200 miles below the equator. At 19,341 feet, it has year-round glaciers at its peak. Tanzanite is found near the base of Mt Kilimanjaro. Tanzanite is so rare that it’s likely to run out in the next ten years.
The animal life around Mt Kilimanjaro is rich. The photography is legendary, with vast open lands and herds of classic African animals. Try to imagine a year-round snow-capped mountain nearly four miles high, as compared to our New England Mt. Washington at one mile high, as a backdrop to the pictures you will be taking when you go.
Following are some of the animals around Mt Kilimanjaro.
