The Tanzanian miner and father-of-30 children who became an overnight millionaire after digging up two massive chunks of one of the world’s rarest gemstones worth $3.35million, has found a third multi-million-dollar lump of Tanzanite.

The third stone allegedly weighs six kilograms and has an estimated value of $2million (£1.5million ).

Mr. Saniniu Laizer found Tanzanite, which has a deep violet-blue colour, near his home in northern Tanzania, according to local report.

Who is the Tanzanian Miner Saniniu?

Afromambo reported earlier that

A small-scale miner in Tanzania has become an overnight millionaire after selling two rough Tanzanite stones – the biggest ever find in the country.

Saniniu Laizer earned £2.4m ($3.4m) from the country’s mining ministry for the gemstones, which had a combined weight of 15kg (33 lb).

“There will be a big party tomorrow,” Mr Laizer, a father of more than 30 children, told the BBC.

Tanzanite is only found in northern Tanzania and is used to make ornaments.

It is one of the rarest gemstones on Earth, and one local geologist estimates its supply may be entirely depleted within the next 20 years.

The precious stone’s appeal lies in its variety of hues, including green, red, purple and blue.

Its value is determined by rarity – the finer the colour or clarity, the higher the price.

The 52-year-old, who has four wives and 30 children, previously vowed to use some of his earnings to build a school and a shopping mall in his community, where many parents can’t afford to pay for their children’s education.

Last month, the Tanzanian government gave Saniniu a cheque for 7.74 billion Tanzanian shillings ($3.35million) for the first two stones which weighed 9.2kg and 5.8kg
