Crystal Properties: Tanzanite is a calcium aluminum silicate with an orthorhombic crystal system. The color is mostly blue or blue-violet, though some crystals are yellow. It comes from Tanzania, Africa.
Metaphysical Properties: Tanzanite integrates the energies of the mind and heart. It opens a cascade of thoughts and insights, but it keeps one calmly anchored in the heart’s wisdom. The integration of mind and heart offered by Tanzanite takes place through the linkage and attunement of the heart and third eye chakras. Bringing the heart into communion with the mind is essential to achieving wholeness. Tanzanite helps by making the heart’s promptings more noticeable to the mind and connecting a circuit between the heart and third eye.
