Welcome to the Tanganyika Trading section of African Gemstones! Although Logan is in charge of the African Gemstone lists, I still like to keep an interest in the business and consequently am involved in the buying of rough as well as managing the Tanganyika Trading section. African Gemstones, as you well know, offers a large variety of individual stones whereas Tanganyika Trading is geared to larger individual investment grade stones, and, parcels of rough which would be of interest to the commercial cutter. All stones on the Tanganyika site are in South Africa and will be sent directly from here.

Latest News...............
Policy changes - Ordering from the Tanganyika Trading lists? If you are in the USA or Canada, payments can be made direct to Logan although the orders will still be sent from South Africa. Not located in these two countries? Payments to be made either to our bankers in South Africa, or, The Channel Islands (very useful if you are located in the EU). However, if you are also ordering from African Gemstones, you can combine both amounts and still send to Logan. Unfortunately, new legislation from the States no longer allows us to operate an off-shore company in the country and sell internally. Hence the move to the Channel Islands!

Hello to you all,
During 2016, over 1500 odd jewellery companies closed in the States and Canada, and a further 900 closed in 2017 including 3500 major stores selling jewellery. This has been a big concern of ours, coupled with the retirement of number of our older cutters and the fact that fewer younger cutters are coming into the business. Thus we will endeavour to keep prices as low as possible for the next few months which we hope will boost the profits of the smaller cutter, and, hopefully will rekindle interest in the art of cutting.

The new president of Tanzania has had a 24km wall built around the Tanzanite mines. He highlighted a 2017 decision that from now on the wholesale of tanzanite must be carried out under the control of the Tanzanian Central Bank inside the new wall. Prior to this decision, rough tanzanite was sold in Arusha and Nairobi. Mine owners will also have to pay monthly salaries, pensions etc, the majority of which will not be able to do so. A total embargo on the export of any rough gemstone mined in Tanzania came into effect from January this year. Please note that we have very low stocks on Tanzanian rough and cannot, at this stage replenish our rough.

Aquamarine from Mozambique has also become very difficult to obtain, no new Santa Maria rough has been found and only light colored Aqua is on offer. However, we did manage to clinch a deal on a parcel of the new Purple Garnet which we had on the May list.
The new rough will only appear on our lists around July.


NEW MATERIAL ON THIS LIST -
Please take a look at our new parcels on offer, especially the large Tourmaline parcel MZ/39. This is a great parcel of very good colors and definitely worth considering, especially at the price asked.
Take a look at some of our remaining Winza Sapphire parcels. This mine, situated just outside Dodoma in Tanzania, closed down quite some years ago. It was unique in that an assortment of different colors came fromthe same deposit, many stones having blue and red colors in the same stone. We have one parcel (UM/6) of larger sizes, namely 3.5 ct to 4.5 ct sizes, the rest of our parcels being 2.5 ct - 3.5 ct sizes.
A few Mahenga Garnets, some superb large Rhodolites, Umba Garnets, Malaia 'Color-Change
' Garnets, a 'Mint' Green Garnet, Chrome Tourmaline are to be found on the TT. 1 list.
Parcels of Malaia Garnet, pink Tourmalines and the Winza Sapphires will be found on the TT2 list.

Happy Cutting!!

Hilmar and Tamzin
