I found thias shop in St Lucia selling Tanzanite
Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone. It occurs in only one place worldwide. Its blue, surrounded by a fine hint of purple, is a wonderful colour. Thanks to its unusual aura and the help of the New York jeweller's Tiffany, it has rapidly become one of the most coveted gemstones in the world.

It is named after the East African state of Tanzania, the only place in the world where it has been found.

On its discovery in 1967, it was enthusiastically celebrated by the specialists as the 'gemstone of the 20th century'.
