|The world’s most endangered gem? African fire reveals 100 carats of stunning tanzanite treasure According to legend, lightning struck near Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa, setting the ground ablaze. When the fire and smoke cleared, the local Masaai tribe found brilliant violet gems. Word of the vivid jewels soon spread, and gem hunters from across the globe flocked to Tanzania to claim their share of the unique stone. Experts agree that one day, maybe soon, the Earths supply of the rare gem will simply and suddenly disappear. Tanzanite is only mined within a 4 square kilometer section of Tanzania. Thats it.
