As one of the world’s largest tanzanite companies, we have unprecedented access to the finest stones unearthed from TanzaniteOne Mining Ltd, which means we are in the unique position to offer the largest selection of what is often called “Investment Grade Tanzanite” – the very finest quality tanzanite, in exceptionally large and rare sizes and colors.

With our close relationship and direct access to the tanzanite supply chain, we can offer you any size, color or clarity of tanzanite – however, the purpose of  our investment grade tanzanite selection is to offer only the best of the best, the very top 1%. These are extremely rare stones, which are simply not mined in large quantities.

When assembling stones for your consideration from this collection, we are exceptionally selective – and only true investment grade stones make the grade.

In addition to the deeply saturated blue tanzanite, and very large stones over 50 carats, we also have rare and unusual “fancy tanzanite” in yellows, greens, purples and very occasionally, pinks.

As our online selection is only a tiny sampler of what we have in our vaults, the best way to find out more about our investment grade tanzanite is to email your special requests to our Gemologist Linda – who can check our stock and advise you if we have a fine example, unusual and/or rare piece to match your requirements.

Looking for something very special? Ask our gemologist to check the thousands of stones we have behind the scenes.


Tanzanite Direct are proud to offer an astonishing, 157 carat natural tanzanite. ( Pictured with 58 cushion – also available )
“This museum grade emerald cut is one of the largest gem-type quality Tanzanites ever to be mined” notes Linda Kennedy , Gemologist for Tanzanite Direct.
Kennedy says miners recently discovered a new pocket in the mining area, and that this is a brand new stone on the market. This stone is remarkable not only for its size but for its brilliance and color – in comparison to other large tanzanites which are usually inky blue-black in appearance.  Supported by a GIA certificate.

“This is an opportunity that comes around once in a lifetime, not only for the quality and carat weight, but also to be the first of this stones owners” .

      • Measurements show the tanzanite’s minimum diameter and depth, measured in millimetres. The measurements are noted as length x width x depth.
      • The “face-up” measurements of length and width are the best way to judge a colored stones actual size – as opposed to carat weight which can change depending on the variations in each stones proportions.


      • Tanzanite Directs ‘s gemologists hand-select only premium cut stones which are symmetrical, smoothly polished, and even in color and light reflection.


      Tanzanite Direct separates our tanzanite into four color groups.

      • The lighter the color of the tanzanite – the more commonly it is found.
      • The richer and more vibrant the color, the rarer and more expensive the tanzanite.
      • Due to its unique crystal structure, tanzanite is one of only two known gemstones to clearly show two colors at once. As a result, a tanzanite can never be purely blue or violet colored – always a combination of the two.
      • Darker tanzanite does not mean better tanzanite  – it means rarer. Beauty is subjective and the right color for you is a personal choice.


      • “Clarity” means the number of inclusions: any natural cracks, features or flaws within a tanzanite gemstone.
      • Only flawless loose tanzanite gemstones, with no inclusions and the highest GIA Clarity grade of “Eye Clean”- which is commonly known as “flawless”- are sold by Tanzanite Direct .
