A Tanzanian mining boss has collected more than 7.74bn Tanzanian shillings ($3.35m) after workers at his activity in the East African country found the two biggest tanzanite. Tanzanite is established only in a small northern region of the East African nation. It was first found in 1967.
The two dark violet-blue gemstones, each about 30cm long and 10cm hard, were founded by miners employed by Saniniu Laizer in a mine in the north of the country. There will be a big celebration tomorrow,” Laizer, from the Manyara region, told the BBC. “I want to frame a shopping mall and a school. I want to frame this school near my home. Many poor people around here can’t manage to take their kids to school.
The BBC announced that he has more than 30 children. Laizer mined the two stones weighing 20.3 and 12.7 pounds last week before he sold them Wednesday during a commerce event. The earlier history for a tanzanite gemstone was approximately 7.3 pounds, according to the news organization.
Tanzanite is said to be a gemstone found only in the northern place of the country. It’s reportedly used to make adorn– with its oddity decide by how clear or well decide the color is, the BBC reported.
Today’s event … is to admit the two largest tanzanite gemstones in past since the starting part of mining activities in Mirerani,” Simon Msanjila, mines ministry, permanent secretary, said at a function in Tanzania’s northern Manyara place, according to the Guardian.
