Tanzanite Metaphysical Properties – Amazing Benefits and Powers


Tanzanite is a gemstone which was discovered relatively recently but captured the hearts of gem lovers very quickly with its unique violetish blue color. Tanzanite is the second most desirable blue color gemstone in the world after blue sapphire and it is also a birthstone for the month of December. In this article, I will be explaining the tanzanite metaphysical properties along with a little bit of background information.


About Tanzanite

Unlike many other gemstone which were known to humans for thousands of years, Tanzanite was first discovered in 1967. Tanzanite is a blue variation of the mineral zoisite and the name was given by the famous Tiffany & Co in honor of Tanzania where it was found.

To date, Tanzania remains the only location where Tanzanite is mined in commercial quantities. The mine is located near a city called Arusha in the base of the famous Mount Kilimanjaro and it is only 8 square miles in size.

The blue color of tanzanite is from small presence of vanadium in zoisite mineral. Heating this for about 30 mins under 600 degrees Celsius improves the blue color. But compared to gemstones like sapphire, this heat treatment is considered a mild treatment and this color change is due to the change in the oxidation state of vanadium during heating.

You can find more technical information on Tanzanite from the official GIA page here.  I will move on to discuss the tanzanite metaphysical properties as that is the main objective of this article.

6.     Chakra Healing and Energy Balancing

Chakra healing is another key aspect in Tanzanite metaphysical properties as Tanzanite stimulates Crown, Third Eye and Throat chakras. Therefore tanzanite is a stone that connects the spiritual power of the mind, intellect and communication.

Tanzanite is also considered as the most efficient stone to synchronize the Heart Chakra with the Third Eye Chakra which makes the better coherence of heart and mind.

The blue crystal energy is the activator of the throat chakra. As the throat chakra acts as a regulator of energy of other chakras, its balance is important for the health of those as well and for the communication of our inner self to the world.  There will be a proper flow of energy in the body and soul and also a free upward flow of energy from lower chakras allowing natural outflow and expression.

The Third Eye or the Brow Chakra controls how we perceive the world and our awareness of it. Our consciousness is controlled through this chakra and our constant communication with the inner self is persistent when this chakra is balanced. A balance third eye chakra also makes us open to our visions and dreams.

Crown chakra defines our spirit, our values and beliefs. It controls our reactions to the external stimuli.  It is also the point which connects us to the spiritual realm.  A balanced crown chakra makes us spiritually strong and gives us a deep understanding of the way of life. It makes us face challenges with a better understanding of how things work.
