Info on Tanzanite One:
TanzaniteOne Trading is a Richland Resources group subsidiary based in Arusha. It purchases rough Tanzanite from smaller miners, brokers and dealers and operates under the guidelines of the Tucson Tanzanite Protocols.
To ensure pricing stability and ethically sourced material, TanzaniteOne Trading pays a small premium.
TanzaniteOne Marketing is the group’s wholesale marketing and sales arm for rough Tanzanite. The subsidiary consolidates the available mined and traded rough Tanzanite and is able to add further value by applying a proprietary rough Tanzanite grading system. The rough stone is parcelled up specifically to suit the business needs of its eight Sightholders.
This is achieved through the “Preferred Supply Strategy”, a world first in the coloured gemstone industry. The aim is to grow the global market for Tanzanite via strategic collaborative relationships with exclusive distribution partners (known as Sightholders). Presently there are only eight of these high-status companies appointed. Each one is selected from the world's leading gemstone houses and jewellery manufacturers.
The Tanzanite One foundation:
The Tanzanite Foundation is a non-profit, industry supported organisation, dedicated to protecting and promoting Tanzanite on behalf of all ethical and socially responsible operators within the Tanzanite Industry. By working to standardise methods of practice and conduct, the Tanzanite Foundation seeks to uphold an ethical route to market in accordance with the Tucson Tanzanite Protocols.
