Discovered in 1967, tanzanite has taken the jewelry and gemstone industries by storm. The beautiful, vibrant blue-purple gemstone has intrigued consumers and captured the interest of jewelry designers across the globe. Tanzanite is unique in that it is found in only one place in the world — a small strip of land in a remote region of East Africa. Rumors of decrease in supply led Jewelry Television’s experienced team of gemologists to Arusha, Tanzania in search of the real story.
The 45 minute, action-packed documentary explores the people, marketplace and mines of Tanzania while accompanying miners deep into the earth to uncover tanzanite “in the rough.” Jewelry Television’s team even follows the gemstone all the way to Jaipur, India where the stones are cut, faceted, polished and prepared for market.
“Based on our conversations with miners and traders, and personal explorations led us to the conclusion that tanzanite may truly be a gemstone that is available for only one generation,” said Jerry Sisk, Graduate Gemologist and Co-Founder of JTV. “JTV is the largest retailer of tanzanite in the world and we wanted to get to the bottom of the supply situation and inform the public. This documentary takes you along with us for the ride,” he said.
Tanzanite: The One Generation Gemstone is available at JTV.com for $19.99 plus shipping and handling.
