What is Yellow Tanzanite?
Yellow exists in Zoisite. Not typically pure in color usually exhibiting secondary green and or blue color. A gem for the collector as many other gems have a more desirable yellow color. So is Tanzanite heated to become this color? No, it's actually found in the mines this color. It's very rare, as you almost always only see purple and blue Tanzanite.
