Tanzanite is one of the alternate birthstones for December. More importantly, tanzanite is my favorite gemstone, second only to alexandrite. I’ve made an entire blog about tanzanite because I just couldn’t wait until December to talk about it. You can read my thoughts about it here & also look around the blog for great deals & bargains. Tanzanite makes a great present & you can find it affordably, even though it is a rare gemstone.  (I write in really long sentences when I get excited, does it show? Tanzanite is just that pretty)
