History of Tanzanite Cabochons –
“Tanzanite” is one the hottest gemstone in series of blue color. This gem was first found in northern Tanzania (East Africa). This gemstone comes under category of mineral “Zoisite” and was named after its origin country. Tiffany and company made this stone popular overnight among jewelry designers and other gemologist. It came into attention of general public when Kate winslet first wore it in movie “Titanic”.
This stone comes in light to dark violet-ish blue and bluish purple in color. “Pleochroism” is one of the main properties of this stone which means it shows different color level hues from different directions.

You will easily get free size TZ cabs but it is difficult to found a supplier who manufactures calibrated size tanzanite cabochons. Our manufacturing unit which is situated in Thailand, has been making all calibrated and free size Tanzanite cabochons at wholesale quantities.
Why Tanzanite availability is low in market and prices are skyrocketing?
Our company already stocked Tanzanite rough for cabochons and now we are capable to supply easily at competitive prices to our customers. As Tanzania is only source for raw material of this stone, this is the reason of price behind high prices of tanzanite. Tanzania’s government is very strict on export of tanzanite rough stone now and mainly processing it from there only and some people, who illegally export rough of tanzanite, ask for high prices and that is not worth buying to illegal material. This stone is a very good investment because sooner it will be very rare like Burma rubies because availability is very doubtful for it.

Color chart and color-price graph of tanzanite – There is different perspective of different buyers in this stone, some buyers pay more prices for more purplish-blue with medium color and some buyers prefer darker color. If we talk about general perspective then as explained slightly in above paragraph that price of tanzanite cabochons depends on color, quality and size. More dark with perfect saturation without any inclusion or cracks will be high in prices. Calibrated sizes are high in per carat prices than free sizes because when we cut it a calibrated size tanzanite then we has to go through a huge weight loss of the stone. Basically if you grade tz cabs on based on color and quality then A – light color and slight cracks and inclusions inside, AA – Medium color with no eye visible cracks and slight inclusions, AAA – No inclusions, no cracks and dark well saturated colors.
Top quality material often comes in cabochons; mainly you will see AAA (Top quality) material in cut stones of tanzanite. Prices depend on sizes and carat weight also. If we talk about free size tanzanite cabochons then below 5 carats will costs most cheap and 5-15 carats medium price range then 15 carats plus will be higher in prices.
