At Tanzania .
The gem was discovered by a man named Manuel De Souza, an Indian seamstress who traveled to Tanzania in search of gems and gold. He was said to have been walking across the foothills of Mount Cleimangaroo when he saw something shining in the ground. He concluded that the stone was too soft that it was not sapphire, and was later classified as a varied combination of zosite metal.

Celebrities often wore it on the red carpet, drawing public interest in this striking and unusual gemstone.
