"Named after the East African state of Tanzania, Tanzanite was introduced by Tiffany & Co. in their fine jewelry collection in the late 1960’s.
Known originally as Zoisite, discovered in the Austrian Alps in 1805, named after a mineral collector, Zois. Zoisite mineral, also known as saualpite, can be black, green, pink, red, blue, brown and colorless. Zoisite was also found in Tanzania in 1954 in the green and red varieties.
The Masai called it, anyolite, the word for green.
In 1967 a new variety of blue Zoisite was discovered in Tanzania. Lavender blue in natural light by day and exhibiting reddish violets in artificial light at night, this newly discovered color was immediately treasured. There has not been any other deposits of Tanzanite found since 1967; therefore, limiting the quantities available and increasing the value of gem quality large stones.
Wearing a Tanzanite is like having a shimmering bouquet of periwinkle flowers–that last forever."

"This store has a very pleasant environment and Jeff and Janet are both kind, wonderful people. I used Jeff a few times for appraisals and he was very thorough and was happy to answer lots of questions. He uses scientific methods and tests rather than going solely by appearance as some jewelers will try to do, and his expertise is well respected. On one occasion, he even went out of his way to help expedite a deal for me. He has my highest recommendation. Suzanne T., San Rafael, CA

“Janet and Jeff designed and crafted our wedding rings and did a great job. They worked with existing diamonds we had in an antique ruby cocktail ring, added the sapphire stone and made a beautiful pendant with the ruby. In addition, they designed earrings for our daughters. All are still in great shape today. They are easy to work with and very reliable and trustworthy.” Peg M., San Anselmo
