Tanzanite is a variety of the zeolite family. It is also known as blue zoisite but was renamed by Tiffany & Co jewellers as Tanzanite. Mined from the mirage of colours that make up the Merelani Hills that sit at the base of the snow-capped Mount KIlimanjaro, this rare gem was first discovered in the 1960’s.
Tanazanite is a transformative gemstone that facilitates inner calm, dissolves old patterns and stimulates psychic abilities and higher consciousness. As a beacon of serenity, Tanzanite instils confidence, helps overcome fears and anxieties and promotes calmness.
Tanzanite is useful in treating psychological disorders, stress and nervous tension. It is excellent for the problem of excessive sweating. It may relieve migraines and in conjunction with other treatments such as counselling, can help in curing alcoholism. It is also said to strengthen the immunity, detoxify the blood, promote the regeneration of cells, skin and hair and protect against the side effects of medical or surgical intervention.
