Tanzanite is a zoisite mineral that is blue and violet in color and is caused by minor levels of vanadium. Tanzanite's intense violet-blue colors can even rival fine sapphire, yet it's a far rarer stone because it's only discovered in Tanzania, near the Mererani Hills, in a very tiny mining area. Tanzanite is a pleochroic gemstone with unusually strong trichroism that can seem blue, violet, or burgundy depending on the crystal orientation and viewing angle. This gemstone was given the name tanzanite by Tiffany & Co. Tanzania, the country where it was discovered. Almost all Tanzanite is subjected to a particular heat treatment that gives it its appealing blue colors. Tanzanite is also replicated in today's world due to its high demand.


Burma Ruby, a member of the corundum family, is the rarest and most costly gemstone. Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is also known for its best Rubies, which established quality and color standards in the international market. Burma Rubies come in a variety of colors, from pink red ruby to a brilliant pigeon blood red, which is considered the best color for a ruby. It's sometimes referred to as the "King of Rubies." Due to the geographical conditions, Myanmar rubies contain fewer iron traces than Thai rubies and are more intense reds with far higher fluorescence than Thai rubies.


Jadeite is most recognized for the vivid emerald green of imperial jade, but it also comes in lavender, white, orange-red, blue, black, yellow, and colorless varieties. Because of the extensive folklore around this gemstone, it is extremely valuable in China, Mayan, and Maori civilizations. The value of jadeite is determined by its translucence and texture. A high-quality Jadeite has the appearance of a little bubble filled with water or a drop of colored oil. However, establishing the price of jade is still more subjective than determining the price of most gemstones. The Jadeite's inventiveness is quite important. According to a Chinese proverb, gold is valuable, but jadeite is priceless.


Ammolite gemstones are mostly found on the eastern slopes of North America's Rocky Mountains. It is built of ammonite fossilised shells, mostly aragonite shells from marine mollusks that are more than 65 million years old. The World Jewelry Confederation (CIBJO) designated ammolite as an official gemstone in 1981, and commercial ammolite mining began the following year. In 2007, it was named the official gemstone of the city of Lethbridge, Alberta. The value of these one-of-a-kind ammolite gems rises due to their unusual colors and extreme iridescence, as well as how far the gemstone can be rotated without losing its color.


Kashmir Sapphire is a highly sought-after sapphire variety known for its absorbing blue color and velvety, silky colors. Kashmir Sapphire is also one of the most valuable jewels. These diamonds have a lot of rutile in them, which gives them a velvety appearance. The mines that originally produced them in the Himalayas dried up about 1930. As a result, the value of these jewels increased throughout time. Only a few of the world's wealthiest people will ever have the opportunity to buy a Kashmir Sapphire. The appearance of Kashmir sapphires in museums or in various images is an exception, and it is quite rare to locate a new Sapphire. One of the reasons Kashmir Sapphire is so popular is because it is the epitome of a near-perfect sapphire if such a thing existed.
