The presence of vanadium is what creates the incredible color of the tanzanite. These crystals have quite a distinct property known as plechroism, meaning that they can appear as more than one color when viewed at different angels. Tanzanite can be see as purple, grey, or blue. Under an incandescent light the stones may even appear violet. Tanzanites are 1000x rarer than diamonds.
On Mohs scale it has a 6.5 hardness with a orthorhombic crystal structure
Tanzanite is a calming stone and is said to enhance composure and harmony.
Tanzanite has been declared in 2002 an additional December's birthstone by the American Gem Trade Association.
