T is for Tanzania #atozchallenge



For me this country will always be represented by the gorgeous Tanzanite stone. I used to drool over the tanzanite jewelry QVC presented. I even bought a tanzanite ring myself, but gave it away as a gift. One day I'll buy another one. It would be perfect if i could go to Tanzania and buy it there. 



Not much to say, this is an image moment. Shades of purple and blue. Pics from Jewelry Wholesale .

This is a gigantic blog hop so click here to see what other bloggers are discussing for this letter. Have fun.

  1. Oooh, pretty! I had no idea tanzanite came in so many different shades. I am now coveting the stones in the very first picture.

    Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,
    Jocelyn

  3. Opals have been a favorite gem of mine but now that I see how beautiful tanzanite is, I think they are tied for first place :)

    1. Opals are pretty and so are tanzanites, but my first love is the all powerful Sapphire.

  6. Beautiful stones. In my head I always put Tanzania together with Safari. Now I have two reasons to visit.

  9. I am so ignorant about gems and where they are from. The Tanzanite looks gorgeous especially those with the hint of blue. Thanks for sharing, Nana!

  10. SO pretty!!! It would be great if you did make to Tanzania one day and buy it there! :)

  11. Tanzanian is one of my favorite stones, though I love the deep blues rather than the purples. I have a couple of unmounted stones I want to make into ear rings. My other blue stones I love are Sapphires and blue diamonds. :)

  12. Those are lovely, especially the dark blue ones. I think it would be awesome to go to Tanzania to buy a special treat for yourself. You'd have the trip and a perfect souvenir :)

  13. The recipient of your give away ring was lucky indeed. I bet there is a good story in that decision. Hope this is the year you buy another one of these fabulous stones.
