Tanzanite is a mineral variety of zoisite (which is nothing but a type of calcium aluminum hydroxyl sorosilicate). The blue or violet hue of Tanzanite is caused due to small amounts of vanadium present in it. Tanzanite is a rare mineral, and the only site of tanzanite explored until now is the Simanjiro District of the Manyara Region in Tanzania. The mining area is relatively small (approximately 7 kilometres long and 2 kilometres wide) and is near the Mererani Hills.
Tanzanite is known for its strong trichroism (an optical effect), because of which it displays alternate colors of blue, violet, and burgundy. This display of colors depends on crystal orientation. It has also been found that tanzanite varies in appearance when viewed under different lighting conditions. When viewed under fluorescent light, the blue color is found to be more prominent, and when viewed under incandescent illumination, the violet hue is found to be more prominent. Please note that in the mines, the naturally occurring tanzanite is reddish brown to clear in color. Tanzanite is passed through a heat treatment to remove its brownish veil and bring out the blue-violet color of the stone.
The name “tanzanite” was first coined by Tiffany & Co. after the country in which it was first found (the country name being Tanzania). They named it so because they felt that the name “blue-violet zoisite” was not consumer friendly. Do you want to know how tanzanite came into existence? It is another exciting story. Around 585 million years ago, during the mid-Ediacaran Period, tanzanite was formed because of intense heat and massive tectonic plate activity. This region where the tectonic plate activity happened eventually became Mount Kilimanjaro. In today’s times, the tanzanite deposits are typically found in the hinge of isoclinal folds.
If you plan to buy tanzanite jewelry, be cautious of two things. First, understand that finding a big piece of tanzanite embedded in the jewelry is quite rare. Although the biggest natural piece of Tanzanite weighs 123 carats, finding a natural tanzanite gem weighing more than 5 carats is extremely rare. Secondly, buy tanzanite jewelry only from trusted sources. Because of the introduction of Tanzanite in the gemstone jewelry market by Tiffany and Co., the market got flooded with fake Tanzanite gems. Most of the fake tanzanite claimed to be of gem grade is nothing but heated Corundum or synthetic Spinel.
Tanzanite has many metaphysical benefits. Tanzanite jewelry is said to stimulate the wearer's throat, third eye, and crown chakra. It is a wonderful gemstone to work with when the wearer wants to integrate the mind, heart, and soul with unity consciousness. This stone brings the vibration of unconditional love in the wearer, allowing him to speak compassionately straight from the heart center while also displaying higher intellectual understanding and truth channeled through the higher self. Tanzanite is believed to be an excellent stone for self-actualization that ignites the desire to follow a spiritual path. It allows the wearer to become the best version of themselves, allowing him to unlock higher states of consciousness in which a person naturally feels meditative.
Tanzanite has many physical healing benefits as well. It is excellent for boosting your immune system. Being the gemstone for transformation, it encourages regeneration, meaning the skin and hair of your body will regain their optimal state of health and wellness. Tanzanite jewelry is also suitable for the wearer if he is recovering from some illness or medical procedure. It is said to infuse the wearer with strength and detox the body. It also works well when worn as a talisman to eliminate addictions and obsessive dependencies such as alcohol or things of that nature. Lastly, tanzanite is said to calm the nerves and helps with the issues such as stress, migraines, and other tension-related problems.
Tanzanite pairs well with many crystals due to the high vibrational energy of this stone. It can work as a grounding stone, encouraging meditativeness when paired with Hematite. Hematite is said to pull higher vibrations from the cosmos using its magnetic ability. These vibrations help the wearer attune to the higher knowledge that comes in the form of cosmic downloads. And tanzanite transforms this energy of hematite into growing, meditative energy. Other than hematite, you can try pairing tanzanite with blue or violet-colored gemstones, such as blue topaz or amethyst.
If you have bought tanzanite jewelry, then make sure that you focus on its care and maintenance, like with all of your other jewelry pieces. One thing that you need to be extra careful of is never exposing it to sudden temperature changes. But you can be worry-free when you go out outdoors – the color of tanzanite is never affected by strong light. In order to clean your favorite piece of tanzanite jewelry, use warm soapy water and allow it to air dry or gently pat dry it using a soft cloth. Never use ultrasonic cleaners, steam dryers, and boiling water for cleaning tanzanite. Also, please note that although tanzanite is a hard stone, and it ranks 6.5 to 7 on the Mohs Hardness Scale, you need to handle it with care. The wearer must avoid bumping or scraping his jewelry throughout the day.
