On the other hand we, girls, all fall for the passion, politeness, jokes, smiles, carrying moments, high school t-shirt, happy with a warm meal kind of man. So if not all girls want the Ferrari or Jack of gems, then why not talking more about the other fascinating precious stones out there? I am so sure many of you ladies also feel like having a ruby, emerald, sapphire, moonstone, topaz or any gem more colorful, exciting and related to some ancient stories about love and power...rather than just the diamond :)
Since you may already be familiar with my passion for gems and their tales, I'd like to introduce you to a new friend I met while in Tanzania.
Tanzanite's exquisite colour is an intriguing mix of blue and purple..even yellow and burgundy, unlike any other gemstone. Discovered by the Maasai tribe and named by the famous Tiffany&Co house who considered it to be "the most beautiful blue stone discovered in 2000 years", Tanzanite has became pretty popular.
Interestingly, when giving birth to a child, Maasai women wear blue beads and fabric to bestow upon the child a healthy and positive life, setting themselves apart as creators of new life.
For African women, and even for women from all over the world , Tanzanite has became ‘ the birthstone', the perfect gem to celebrate a birth.
Here is a bit more about HOW to shop for a Tanzanite in case you plan for some gems #happymaking. It is cheaper and a good alternative to blue sapphires however still out of my league :)
Hope you made a new friend!
