  TANZANITE - Mohs Hardness - 6.5   (Found in – Mererani, Tanzania)
History – Tanzanite is a blue zoisite which is trichroic - meaning it often shows different colors when viewed from different directions.  In 1967 a rich violet-blue transparent type of zoisite was discovered in Tanzania.  The stone was named after this, the only country they are found, two years later.  Tanzanites are now found in blue, green,yellow, pink, and brwon, but all will change to a blue color when heated.  The stone was added to the official December birthstone list in 2004.  It has a low resistance to ultrasound, therefore, do not clean with ultrasonic cleaner.   Zoisite was first discovered by Baron von Zois in Austria, and called Saualpite.
