So you thought Tanzanite was just purple or blue...or a mix of both colors? We even did a blog post of Ocean Tanzanite. Well a common question is "What is White Tanzanite?"
White Tanzanite is just a rate color/form of Zoisite/Tanzanite that ranges from a clear color to a very, very light blue. It's not a colored stone that is in big demand due to this lighter color. The more precious colors are the dark purples and dark blues. If you are looking for a white/clear gemstone, there are much better choices out there for you. Some people do like White Tanzanite, just due to the different lighter colors that can be seen from different angles.
We have yet to come across a white Tanzanite, but are not actively searching for it as the market wants darker blue and purple Tanzanite colors instead.
If you are looking for this clear color, please contact us and we can definitely help you find it.
