Tiffany & Company, named the stone "Tanzanite" after the country of origin. Tanzanite is found in the Usumburu Mountains that border the Umba Valley of northern Tanzania. This region is inhabited by the Masai tribes-people. The mining area is located just south of the Kenya border near Mt. Kilimanjaro.
