Tanzanite is a relatively newly discovered gem stone, found in 1967 in Tanzania and with the original name Zoisite.
The name tanzanite was given to this precious stone by the jewellery company Tiffany’s & co and named so as it is only found in One place, Tanzania, at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro.
Interestingly spiders are found on every continent in the world except from Antarctica. Spiders are generally something that are feared rather than considered to be conventionally beautiful. However these pieces of jewellery are something to be admired. Inspired by African folklore they are delicate and a bold representation of spiders and their webs.
