Tanzanite Stone

Boost Your Health With a Tanzanite Stone

As the name suggests, the Tanzanite stone originates from Tanzania, at the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. The magic of Tanzanite is that it is a pleochroic stone, meaning that it will be different colours at different angles as it reflects the light. Wearing Tanzanite close to your heart is said to benefit your throat and lungs and your immune system.

We stock many other natural, semi-precious gemstones that you can use to make your jewellery or add to your collection for self-healing and meditation.

What to Consider When You Buy Tanzanite

If you wish to strengthen the connection between you and spirit and the higher realms, Tanzanite emits high vibrational energies and keeps you connected to your higher self. When you look at the physical aspects of the Tanzanite, there are a few things you might want to consider before buying this rare gemstone:

  • The colour. The colour of the stone will tell you what quality it is. A deep blue, dark violet colour indicates high quality. Tanzanite is very sensitive to heat, which could fade its colour, so be sure the jeweller does not expose it to thermal shock when resizing a ring, for example.
  • Check for weak spots. Tanzanite is not only rare, but it is also a delicate stone with a 6.5 on the Mohs scale of hardness. Be sure to check the brittle stone for any damage before you buy. Be sure that you set Tanzanite for sale in a metal that will protect it against chips and cracks.
  • Clarity. Tanzanite is a type 1 gemstone, so it should very clear of any natural flaws. It is best to steer away from a flawed Tanzanite and opt for a blue stone with violet accents.
  • Tanzanite in your ears, in studs, will be the safest from any damage. Do consider its softness; it is best not to wear Tanzanite daily or if you do, consider a bezel setting for a ring or bracelet that may be prone to more damage.

Tanzanite is a stone you will treasure for its rarity, energy, and unique, brilliant colour-changing ability.
