  • Tanzanite : Tanzanite found its day in the market after it was first discovered in the year 1967 in the country of Tanzania, Africa. It was one of the rare gemstones in the world to show an excellent trichroism, which means that it displays three different colors when looked at from different angles. In the case of Tanzanite, the colors are blue, violet and burgundy. However, the thing that actually makes Tanzanite rare is its extreme scarcity in the world. It is mined from only one mine in the world, which is about 7 km long and 2 km wide and is expected to be mined out in the next 30 years.

Emerald: Emerald is found worldwide but the most gorgeous green gemstones today are reported to originate in South America. In ancient times, Emeralds were respected and revered by ancient Egypt.

Red Beryl : Discovered in the Wah Wah Mountains of Utah, Red Beryl belongs to the same mineral family as emeralds and aquamarines. However, what makes Red Beryl unique is that more than 95% of the mineral found every year is of lower quality. Very few of the high quality are worthy of being used as gems. But these make great collecter’s pieces as they are never faceted. 

Black Opal : Opals are known to be creamy-white with an explosion of colours inside them owing to the diffraction of light and play-of-colour. Most opals are white, grey, or green in colour. However, the black variety of the Opals that is only found in Australia is the rarest. The black background in the colours makes it look like the Northern lights. 

Alexandrite : Popularly known as “Emerald by day, ruby by night,” Alexandrite is famous for its ability to change colours in different lights. In that, Alexandrite appears blue to green in broad daylight, while it shows a red to purple hue in lower lights. Discovered in the Ural mountains in the year 1830, the gemstone was named after Czar Alexander II. Its rarity can be understood by the fact that its source in Ural mountains was exhausted within a couple of decades of its discovery and is now only found in Brazil and a couple of other mines.
Larimar is also a rare gemstone because it's only found in the Dominican Republic, boasting healing properties such as promoting peace, overcoming fears, balancing yin energy, tranquility, and harmonizing the throat chakra. It's found in the mountains beyond Baoruco in the Dominican Republic yet its price remains reasonable, making it a perennial favorite among women for jewelry purposes.
