https://www.TanzaniteJewelryDesigns.com Steve Moriarty travels to Tanzania to go direct to the source of Tanzanite. During this trip he brought along local photographer, Matt Bigelow, to document their trip. This video shows their journey to a Tanzanite mine that they went to and explored. They traveled through Tanzania to Merelani, where Steve's friend owns and operates a Tanzanite mine. Here they met, talked to, and had lunch with the local miners before going into the actual mine itself. Steve's main goal of this trip was to bring back tanzanite, but he also met with the miners and gem dealers in the area to purchase some other natural gemstones that were mined close by. These gems included, Merelani mint garnet, umbalite garnet, zircon, and moonstone. To see images from our blog on th...
For many people, a gold ring is a symbol of everlasting love; but sometimes the story behind the gold itself is not as happy. Tanzania is the fourth largest gold producer in Africa with exports of more than $1.6bn in 2014. Hundreds of thousands of the country's miners work in harsh conditions with little pay and even fewer prospects for their future, but that could soon change with a new Fairtrade deal to sell gold to the UK - the first of its kind in Africa.

(Dar Es Salaam, August 28, 2013) -- Children as young as eight-years-old are working in Tanzanian small-scale gold mines, with grave risks to their health and even their lives. The Tanzanian government should curb child labor in small-scale mining, including at informal, unlicensed mines, and the World Bank and donor countries should support these efforts. http://www.hrw.org/news/2013/08/28/tanzania-hazardous-life-child-gold-miners

Tanzania gold miners trapped for 41 days freed Five gold miners have been rescued in western Tanzania after being trapped underground for 41 days, while 12 others are still missing, police say. The artisanal miners survived by eating roots and soil and are receiving treatment at hospital. The group had gone underground to rescue 11 other miners when they became trapped, police said. Many people search for gold in unregulated mines in remote areas of Tanzania in the hope of becoming rich.
Tanzania's government has accused Acacia Mining of illegally operating in the, causing the company's shares to slump by as high as 14%. An audit ordered by President John Magufuli in March showed that Acacia togther with other mining companies, have been evading taxed for the past 19 years.The firm has been in dispute with the government since the country issued a ban on concentrate exports in March. The restriction is costing Acacia about $1 million a day in sales and the company has said it may be forced to close its flagship Bulyanhulu mine unless a solution is found. Magufuli is overhauling Tanzania's mining industry, seeking to generate more revenue to help finance projects including the building of a new port, railway and oil pipeline.

It was the Maasai tribesman Ali Juuyawatu who first shared his blue-violet crystal find with Manuel de Souza, a tailor by profession and prospector by passion who happened to be in the region in search of Rubies. At first it was thought the stones were unusually vibrant Sapphires, but it was soon confirmed that the new gemstones were more complex than a Sapphire, with a colour more alluring and exotic. Manuel de Souza had no idea that he’d encountered a gemstone the world had never seen... one that remained unnamed.

The government of Tanzania has slapped Acacia Mining with a tax bill of 190 billion dollars. That's equivalent to almost two centuries' worth of the gold producer's revenue. The charges relate to alleged under-declared export revenue from its Bulyanhulu and Buzwagi mines between 2000 and 2017. Acacia maintains it's fully declared all revenue. The fine is the latest development in an escalating conflict between the government and Acacia. In March, Tanzania banned exports of unprocessed gold and copper -- a move Acacia says is costing it about 1-million dollars a day in lost revenue. The government has also accused the firm of operating illegally and tax evasion. Acacia has denied the allegations.
