Tanzanite Meaning

In this guide to Tanzanite we are going to talk about what Tanzanite is, where it is from and the meaning and uses of this amazing gemstone. Tanzanite is a zoisite mineral stone. Most people see this stone in a purple or blue color. It is commonly confused with Sapphire, but much different. Crystals with this color are some of the most coveted ones. This color is not normally natural, and most Tanzanite is heat treated to give it this wonderful purple-blue violet color. It can be found in many other colors as well. We have green, yellow, pink and even brown unheated Tanzanite gemstones. Tons of colors available, but most much rarer than the purples and blues. Tanzanite only comes from Tanzania. You cannot find it anywhere else in the world. That is part of what makes it so rare and more expensive than many of the gemstones and crystals you will find. It was discovered back in 1967, and our owner, Steve Moriarty, has been traveling there for the last 10-15 years. 

Tanzanite Uses

Tanzanite is considered a stone of transformation. This is due to the high vibration it has. They are stones with a high amount of energy and are used by many for metaphysical healing. Because of this high energy, it is said to help with protection and safety, which is perfect for deep meditation and bringing together the heart and mind. It is said that it helps the clairvoyant Brow Chakra open slowly, preventing anything from being overwhelming. To open the Third Eye and psychic powers, circle a Tanzanite clockwise in the center of the brow, and counterclockwise to close it. [Eason, 221]
