Tanzanite is a stone of transmutation, shifting from lilac-blue to sapphire blue and into deep blue-violet. In faceted form it is stunning, celebrated as the Gemstone of the 20th Century and first promoted by the New York jewellers, Tiffany & Co. who created magnificent pieces to showcase this stone.
It is one of the most valuable of all metaphysical crystals for spiritual exploration, bringing together all aspects of communication and psychic power. Its high vibrational energy invites protection and safety in linking with higher realms and allows for deep profound meditation. It is particularly helpful in uniting the mind and heart, teaching one to live from a compassionate heart with an illumined mind.
Tanzanite is relatively rare and costly, occurring in only one place in the world, the Merelani Hills in Tanzania, East Africa. It was discovered in 1967 and is named for its country of origin. It is not especially durable and should be worn with care. It should never be cleaned by ultrasonic methods.
Tanzanite generates an energy of happiness and relief from worries, allowing insight into emotional issues without the need to dwell on them unnecessarily. It inspires one in feeling more compassionate, loving, and centred.
Tanzanite helps in overcoming experiences of fear and crises, and in re-building trust. It helps solve questions related to the meaning of life, and in coming to terms with oneself.
Tanzanite allows one to more easily speak the heart’s truth with all the resourcefulness and eloquence the mind can conjure, and makes the process consistently easier over time.
