While Tanzanite has yet to make it to the popular table à la Sapphire, Ruby, Emerald and Diamond, it’s not because it doesn’t have the same gorgeous beauty, allure or even value—but more likely due to its extreme scarcity and relatively newly discovered status.
Unlike Diamonds and the so-called Big 3, which have been gracing aristocratic jewel boxes since ancient times, Tanzanite, at no fault of its own, didn’t make its dramatic entry onto the jewel market until the late 1960s. It is generally believed that these exotic, lushly-hued gems were first discovered in 1967 by a Maasai in #Merelani, an area in northern #Tanzania close to #MountKilimanjaro.
Enhance Sustainability, Traceability, Trust, Brand Image And Consumer Confidence On African Mineral Products.
The Madini blockchain-enabled minerals trade solution powered by Bluegate TraceChaain can improve products transparency and sustainability, communication and boost customer satisfaction. Producers can choose to engage customers by providing access to related product information stored on the blockchain. This provides increased visibility into minerals: origin, producer, regulation, licenses, quality, and the like, which in turn can build trust, loyalty and contributes to a stronger business-customer relationship.
The launch of blockchain technology marks an important milestone in the implementation of the Madini Africa traceability system.
Already used for specific Tanzanites gems in Tanzania, it will be rolled out to other mineral product lines, such as gold and silver. An innovative system designed guarantee complete product traceability.
