This is a variety of Zoisites first promoted and made famous in the 1960s by Tiffany’s in New York. The colour after being enhanced by heat is a beautiful violet-blue and the Crystals can be cut into fair-sized stones and set with precious metals and diamonds. This century the popularity of this beautiful but expensive stone has overtaken most other gemstones. Tanzanite is said to activate the energies of the heart, throat, third eye and crown chakras and unveils the various plains of consciousness allowing communication with the inner worlds. It is said to facilitate one’s understanding of the universe and see beyond the mental barriers inhibiting access into the depths of space and time. Believers in the power of this magical stone use it with confidence for many healing processes. It is said to be especially effective for eye problems, skin disorders and for bringing back out of comas.
