Tanzanite is alleged to exhibit different types of hues when a person tries to view the gemstone from different possible sides and as per the experts, the prime reason behind this is the presence of pleochroism. Basically, this gemstone is cut in a specific manner so that the blue and violet colors are more emphasized and suppress the brown hues.

The mainstream of tanzanite that is available in the market these days is basically treated with heat in order to reduce the tinge of the brown colors (which is there when the stone is found) and to enrich the blue tones that can compete with most popular gemstone sapphire. It usually measures somewhere between 6.5 to 7 Mohs, when it comes hardness.
