How do you clean jewellery containing tanzanite?

Tanzanite stones are very soft (about 6 1/2 on the Mohs scale) and care should be taken when cleaning the stone as it can chip and break easily. To clean, use a moist, soft cloth to occasionally wipe the ring clean. 
If the item requires a more 'intensive' clean, then we recommend that you use cold water with a small amount of mild detergent to clean the ring.   You can use a soft bristle toothbrush to clean the jewellery,but you will need to avoid cleaning the stone. To dry, do not use a dryer but gently pat the ring with a soft clean cloth.
Do not use a barrel polisher, ultrasonic cleaner or strong cleaning solutions for cleaning jewellery containing tanzanite.
