  • The world's most rarest gemstone in the most organised, customer friendly and most beautiful shop you could visit in Arusha. It is the only Tanzanite shop that has a museum. If you're thinking diamonds don't cut it for you, Tanzanite is 1000 times more rare than it.
  • Excellent displays and a really friendly guide lady who delivered the explanations with style and ease. Wonderful experience, highly recommended.
  • A must visit for those interested in gem stones. Particularly Tanzanite and its mining process. You will also get an opportunity to purchase Tanzanite for great prices
  • Learnt alot about how Tanzanite is mined, graded and polished to the end product. The staff are professional and they take time to explain everything about the rare gem and they will help you make an informed choice...and there is a chance to get the product duty free if you are a tourist 😃
