Tanzania Mt. Kilimanjaro (The Exchange Africa)

A precious stone known for its rarity and brilliance, this blue gem is found solely in one place in the entire world: Tanzania, the country it was named after. Now the Swiss luxury brand Bernhard H Mayer (BHM), which offers high-end handcrafted timepieces and precious jewelry through direct selling company QNET, features Tanzanite in its newest collection.

Described as ‘a geological phenomenon’, Tanzanite is considered a thousand times rarer than diamonds. The name reflects the gem’s limited geographic origin, as all the mines are located in an area of about eight square miles near the base of Mount Kilimanjaro.

As Tanzanite mining is under strict control, legitimate marketers such as QNET have stepped into partner with the Responsible Jewelry Council (RJC) to ensure that all their jewelry products are ethically sourced. The RJC seeks to reduce unlawful mining practices and improve greater efficiency in the mining supply chain traceability.
