2.A Member Of The Zoisite Family!
The Zoisite family was first discovered at the beginning of the 19th century in Austria. Zoisite is named after the Slovenian scientist Ziga Zois, who first identified the mineral. Today Zoisite is considered a gem family rather than an individual gem type. It has three members; Anyolite which is a green opaque mineral, Thulite which is a pink opaque mineral and the superstar of the family, the world famous Tanzanite. The gemstone was discovered by Manuel d'Souza in the Mirerani Hills of Manyara Region in Northern Tanzania in 1967.
The gemstone was given the name 'tanzanite' by a well-known jewellery brand after Tanzania, the country in which it was discovered. The scientific name of "blue-violet Zoisite" was not thought to be consumer friendly enough by marketing experts, who introduced it to the market in 1968. In 2002, the American Gem Trade Association chose tanzanite as a December birthstone, the first change to their birthstone list since 1912.
