How it works:
- Tanzanite is only mined in Tanzania, and like gold, jewelry and other gemstones, you will probably come across imitations on the streets.
Places to beware:
What to do:
- The video shows how to differentiate real from fake but if you are not a qualified gemologist with professional tools, it’s difficult to do so.
- Thus, it’s best to engage reputable shops/traders, starting with those who are members or buy from members of the International Colored Gemstone Association.
