Tanzanite: Magical and Healing Effect, Zodiac signs, Chakras, Taking Care, Identifying Fake

tanzanite is a rate blue and purple gem that is often confused with sapphire or iolite

Named Tanzanite by Henry B. Pratt of Tiffany & Co., after its origin in Tanzania.

Bratt thought the stone needed an attractive distribution name. This is because if you call this stone, which is minerally blue zoisite, “blue zoisite”, not only will you not be able to convey the charm of the stone, but it will also be similar to “blue suicide”. .. Therefore, the color of this stone is reminiscent of the dusk sky of the mining site Tanzania, so it was named “Tanzanite”.
 The color of tanzanite is exactly the color of the sky in Tanzania, which is approaching the darkness. Its naming sense has been highly evaluated.

What is Tanzanite:

Tanzanite is the violet and blue variety of the  zoisite. The biggest feature of tanzanite is pleochroism, due to which it looks different, depending on the light source. It is ultramarine blue under natural light, but when viewed under incandescent light, it may appear reddish purple, both blue and purple, and the color may look different depending on the viewing angle.

Benefits of Tanzanite

Following are the benefits of tanzanite:

  • Helping a turning point,
  • relieving shock,
  • suppressing emotions and bringing calm,
  • making the right decisions and making the best choices,
  • connecting thoughts and emotions,
  • leading to a better life

Healing effects of Tanzanite:

Tanzanite is a stone that stabilizes the mind, and is said to calm the harmful effects of high emotions.

On the physical side, it seems to be used for thyroid and adrenal gland disorders, eye diseases, and excretion of toxins in the body.

It is also a useful stone for counselors and healers. When listening to a counselor or a person to be treated, the other person often speaks based on emotions, so it is said that it helps to take it rationally, interpret it logically, and make a judgment.

However, these effects and benefits have not been proven in modern medicine.

Magical effects of Tanzanite:

Tanzanite as a Keystone of choice to help in turning point

When tanzanite is viewed as a gemstone , the suggestion of its power can be expressed as “the keystone of choice to help turning point”.

You can expect such support by making “correct decisions” for your surroundings and people, and “choosing the best one” from among many options. It is especially useful in difficult situations and milestones in life.

We are forced to make last-minute choices at the milestones of our lives.

For example, when you are wondering whether to get married, you may not be able to decide whether you should change jobs or not, and there are sudden changes in the situation such as unexpected divorce, unemployment due to restructuring, and bereavement of your family.

At times like this, it would be nice if we could consider various possibilities in the future, make the best choices, and move forward, but often we can’t. Because many of us are just swayed by our emotions and stand up.

If you have negative emotions such as anxiety and fear, you will not be able to see the future objectively, and conversely, excessive expectations and unfounded optimism. Moreover, when a farewell to a lover or a farewell to a family comes, you will be dominated by emotional shock and you will not even be able to think about things normally. You’ll just be grieving and want to shout, “What should I do!”

What should I do?
Tanzanite can help you in such cases.

Tanzanite first tries to relieve the shock (the best choice without being swayed by emotions) . Without being distracted by the impact of the event in front of you or the disturbed emotions, you will be guided to grasp the situation correctly and think rationally.

If you make an emotional conclusion on the spot, you will regret it later.

For example, the scene of parting between men and women. It’s easy to declare a divorce on the spot when your partner’s affair is discovered and soaring. However, if you come to a conclusion early, you will have problems in terms of money, custody of your child, and future life.

In the opposite case, even if you know that you should break up with a dishonest person early, you may not be able to break your attachment to the other person, and you may end up having a sly relationship.

In each case, tanzanite helps to keep an eye on the situation. It helps you to think calmly, both for yourself and for the other person, after the emotions have subsided.

The unique power of tanzanite is that the owner meditates with this stone to present and show the choices he can make and the future situation. In the extreme, it’s like showing a list of different images of yourself in the future. Of course, many people may not be able to see it as a clear visual, but if you can get strong inspiration, it will help you identify the best option on the spot.

As a result, you may be able to calm your emotions and be considerate of the other person’s feelings, and in some cases you may stop farewell, while in other cases you may courageously decide to farewell by glancing at some future selves. There will also be.

In any case, Tanzanite will support the person’s best choice at the time.

Tanzanite – Life is an accumulation of choices

The above case dealt with the aspect of whether or not to break up with a partner, but of course this is not the only turning point in life.

There are turning points in negative situations, and positive turning points such as encounters, marriage, childbirth, moving, going on to school, and getting a job. Where you live, where you work, and who you meet will make a big difference in your life.

Moreover, our daily lives are a stack of small choices. The reality in front of you is shaped by what you feel, how you think, and how you express it.

In this way, we are constantly encountering turning points of various sizes and making repeated choices.

However, most people do not think deeply and decide things based on their mood and inertia. Many of them should be repeating endlessly without changing what they decided long ago.

At the turning point, Tanzanite unconsciously presents various patterns such as “There is a life like this” and “There is also such a way to express yourself”. When these potential effects work well, you’re more likely to make the best choice when you’re faced with a major turning point or difficult situation, without having to stick to yourself.

That is why it is said that tanzanite leads life for the better.

Unlike the pastoral life of the past, the life of modern people is acceleratingly busy, and it can be said that it is a series of choices and changes. It may be no wonder that tanzanite appeared in the 20th century and was enthusiastically welcomed by people.

Tanzanite is a Stone that connects thoughts and emotions

Subtle shades such as bluish purple and the characteristic of changing the color tone depending on the light source are manifestations of tanzanite integrating the two principles into one.

From a metaphysical point of view, tanzanite is a “stone that connects thoughts and emotions” and is both feminine and masculine. Emotional elements such as emotions and sensations are supplemented and expressed with calmness such as thoughts and logic.

In order to bring out these characteristics, it is good to have an image of slowly touching tanzanite on the chest, between the eyebrows, and the throat, and combining the vibrations of each chakra into one.

By doing this, you can create a “center of choice” within yourself, avoiding the movement of your mind and body apart, without being dragged by your emotions or by reasoning alone.

How Magical Properties of Tanzanite are different from those of Sapphire or Iolite:

Sapphire, iolite, and tanzanite are similar in appearance and have many common meanings as power stones. In particular, it implies that it will help you when you run into difficult situations or problems.

Now let’s take a look at which stone is appropriate in such a case, rather than the different parts of each stone.

First, sapphire tries to get to the heart of the problem.

Even when you are in a difficult situation, you will have a strong intention to solve the problem from the ground up by gaining insight into the core of the problem with a strong heart like steel.

As a result, things can change completely, but it also brings about the aspect of having to make bold changes.

Cordierite is a “stone that shows the way”.

When you encounter a problem or difficulty, we will support you to think in multiple ways by changing your perspective and way of thinking. By doing so, it clears the direction to go.

Tanzanite is more focused on choice.

When there are various options at the turning point, it is said that the inspiration will bring us an indication of what kind of future is waiting for each choice, or that there is such a way of life. ..

Even if they are similar, there are still differences when you put them side by side, so it’s a good idea to prioritize your own feelings without thinking too much.

Discovery of Tanzanite:

Tanzanite was discovered in the 1960s in the Mererani hills at the foot of Kilimanjaro, Tanzania.

There are several stories leading up to the discovery, but the most credible one is that the local Masai herder Ali Juuyawatu found a piece of transparent blue stone. It was just after the grass was burned by a lightning strike. When Ali showed the stone he picked up to Prospector Manuel D’Souza, who was looking for rubies locally, he initially thought it was sapphire.

However, as a result of discrimination, it was found that it was a different kind of stone with a more complicated composition than sapphire. Minerally, it was a type of zoisite, but until then, no blue-colored zoisite was known. It may have turned blue because it was burned by wildfire.

This stone caught the eye of Tiffany & Co. and was named “Tanzanite” as the distribution name as mentioned above.

Tiffany touts tanzanite as a “jewel of the 20th century” and sells it extensively. With its distinctive blue-purple color and exotic name, the stone was enthusiastically welcomed and quickly swept the jewelery industry. Its popularity is endless and so popular that it has been officially added to the December birthstone list.
