|The secret treasure of Kilimanjaro Don’t miss your chance to own the legendary African gem considered 1000 times rarer than diamonds! I prefer to blaze my own trails, but for this trek, I chose to walk in someone else’s footprints. I wanted to experience exactly what Hemingway did, when he wrote: “;I never knew of a morning in Africa when I woke up that I was not happy.”; I looked forward to seeing the vast continent as he saw it. It didn’t hurt that Africa was also the only place on Earth where tanzanite can be found. Kilimanjaro is a snow-covered mountain, the highest in Africa. Its western summit is called Ng�je Ng�i (the “;House of God”;) by the Masai locals. Hemingway once wrote, “;There, ahead, all he could see, as wide as all the world, great, high, and unbelievably white in the sun, was the square top of Kilimanjaro. And then he knew that there was where he was going.”; I found myself in the shadow of Mt. Kilimanjaro… and that’s where I found tanzanite. This spectacular violet stone that rocked the gem world in the 1960s is only found among the rolling Merelani Hills. And because it only exists in such a tiny area, tanzanite is considered 1000 times rarer than diamonds. Unfortunately, the supply won’t last forever. Our new Kibo Tanzanite Ring is a beautiful chance to stake your claim before it’s too late. The 1 ⅓ carat work of art combines the beauty of tanzanite with the glitter of white topaz. Twelve marquise-cut tanzanite stones are clustered on a ring of polished .925 sterling silver. They glimmer with a cool, violet-blue fire, and are matched by two white topaz rounds on each shoulder. The Kibo Ring is a unique souvenir of a mysterious, faraway land�droplets of rare natural beauty brought to you from the far side of the world. No passport is needed to reach the “;Ngaje Ngai,”; but I recommend a Hemingway novel or two to keep you inspired.
