Tanzanite’s signature deep-blue hue rivals that of a sapphire. It ranges in color from light blue to lilac to deep indigo to violet. Its rarity can be attributed to the fact that it is found and mined in a small area only four kilometers wide and two kilometers long at the foot of Mount Kilimanjaro in the Manyara Region of Northern Tanzania. Tanzanite has been said to possess symbolic powers that enhance cognitive powers and dissolve stagnancy. Tanzanite is a relatively new gemstone only one place in the world—Tanzania—making it rarer than a diamond. Tanzanite is commonly believed to facilitate a higher consciousness and stimulate intuition and perception. It is especially useful in situations that require a calm and soothing presence.
