Tanzanite formed some 585 million years ago but was only discovered in 1967. It is found in only one place in the world, the Mererani Hills of northern Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro. Tanzanite is pleochroic, meaning it shows different colors depending on the viewing angle. It ranges in color from ultramarine to sapphire blue. Under artificial light, it may appear more violet.
Tanzanite is said to be a high vibration crystal, sometimes called the “stone of the indigo ray.” Thought to promote intuition and communication, connection to higher self and inner harmonizing.
