Birthstones of the Month – Tanzanite, Turquoise and Zircon

 

Tanzanite

Treasured for its rich violet blue color, Tanzanites are exclusively found in the East African state of Tanzania, where they were discovered in the late 1960s. Colors range from ultramarine blue to light violet blue and are often heat-treated. Tanzanite is a variety of the gemstone zoisite, a calcium aluminium silicate, it is not particularly hard, having a value of 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs scale. For this reason, Tanzanites should always be worn carefully and never placed in an ultrasonic bath for cleaning or brought into contact with acids.  

 

Turquoise

One of the oldest known gemstones, Turquoise is a copper aluminium phosphate with a hardness of 6 on the Mohs scale. Being relatively soft, Turquoise is sensitive and sometimes treated with wax or synthetic resin to harden it. Turquoise occurs in a wide range of hues from the highly regarded sky blue to grey-green, the blue color being created by copper and the green by bivalent iron and a certain amount of chrome.

For thousands of years, Turquoise has been highly regarded in many cultures of the Old and New Worlds as a holy stone, a bringer of good fortune or as a talisman, worn as natural protection against the powers of darkness. In modern times, they have been said to help those suffering from depression, imbue reticent personalities with more confidence and when given as a gift, they are said to be responsible for faithfulness and constancy in relationships.

Turquoise can be found in the USA, Mexico, Israel, Iran, Afghanistan and China.

 

Zircon

Not to be confused with Cubic Zirconia, a laboratory grown imitation Diamond, Zircon occurs in a wide range of colors, but it is Blue Zircon that is considered an alternate birthstone for December. Zircon is one of the heavier gemstones, which means that it will look smaller than other varieties of the same weight and is relatively hard at 7.5 on the Mohs hardness scale. It has been said that Zircon has the power to relieve pain, whet the appetite, protect travelers from disease and injury, to ensure a warm welcome, bring prosperity, promote honor and wisdom in its owner and prevent nightmares, guaranteeing a deep, tranquil sleep.

Zircon is mined in Cambodia, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Myanmar, Australia, and other countries.
