Tanzanite is relatively rare, 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 one of the most valuable of all metaphysical crystals for spiritual exploration, bringing together allaspects of communication and psychic power. It is particularly helpful in uniting the mind and heart, teaching one to live
from a compassionate heart with an illumined mind.
Tanzanite aids in sharing spiritual information and knowledge from a heart-centred perspective, making it an excellent crystal for counsellors or others in the position of intellectually interpreting emotional experiences.
As a workplace stone, Tanzanite is calming and soothing and helpful in ascertaining your true vocation. Even a tiny piece is beneficial for overcoming communication difficulties. It is also practical in providing a solution to problems when there seems to be none. Tanzanite is said to be beneficial for overworked people, harmonizing fluctuations of energy and assisting in taking time for you.
Emotionally, this stone overcomes depression and anxiety, replacing it with trust and poise, generating energies 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.
