Tanzanite from Tanzania: Tanzanite is an extraordinary gemstone. It occurs in only one place worldwide. Its blue, surrounded by a fine hint of purple, is a wonderful colour.

Tanzanite: It is believed that the coming of this stone to the surface of the planet heralds a tremendous awakening of the heart energies of the race of man. It is primarily for balancing the spirit at this time and you will find that what are called "illnesses" these days are due to an imbalance of the spirit. African folklore says that Tanzanite helps to relax intense individuals who deal with pressure on a regular basis, allowing stress to be eliminated leading to productive, healthier lives.
As one of the newest and most exotically colored gemstones, Tanzanite is part of the Zoisite mineral species and is only found in East Africa.
