Tanzanite is a variant of purple crystal. Various gems used in Jewelcrafting are made of tanzanite.

Pendants have been made from tanzanite.[1]


Elemental creatures consisting of tanzanite can be found in an unnamed cave in the north-eastern part of Tel'anor in Suramar.

The cave is full of purple crystal nodes varying from small to massive in size. The nodes are likely to consist of tanzanite as they share the purple color of the crystals on the creatures within the cave.

Garvrulg, a drogbar exile from the Slatecrusher tribe can also be found within the back of the cave.


There is no player-obtainable raw gem named tanzanite, so there are no craftable designs for them. However, there are a number of cut tanzanite gems that drop from instance bosses in Heroic mode.

Purple, match UI-EmptySocket-Red.png red or UI-EmptySocket-Blue.png blue sockets.
