A beautiful crystal found in Tanzania, Africa, Tanzanite is a variety of Zoisite. Ranging in shades of purple to light blue, Tanzanite demonstrates the optical effect Pleochroism, and can literally change colors depending on where light is shined. It integrates our Throat Chakra and Third Eye Chakras enhancing both communication and intuition allowing us to express our gut feelings and inner visions more clearly. In addition, it is connected to our Crown Chakra permitting us to explore higher spiritual realms and access ancient wisdom. The inner glow that radiates from Tanzanite serves to remind us of our own inner light that we oftentimes dim by holding onto stress and moving far to quickly from one thing to the next creating stillness and returning us to a state of balance.
