To all our December babies, your traditional birthstone is Tanzanite. Natural Tanzanite has many hidden benefits for those born in December but also for all who use or wear it. Read on to find out more!
A little bit of history...
Tanzanite is relatively new to the world of coloured gemstones. It was discovered in 1967 when a Masai tribesman encountered a cluster of these crystals in Merelani, an area of Northern Tanzania.
Almost overnight, Tanzanite was popular with its transparent, yet vivid blue-to-violet colours and high clarity. Leading jewellery designers and other gem professionals quickly worked with this stone, and it has been a staple in the industry ever since.
The Meaning Behind Blue Tanzanite
Tanzanite is a stone of transformation, shifting with the light from lilac-blue to sapphire blue and into deep blue-violet. These stones are said to have a high amount of energy, making them helpful with protection, safety, deep meditation and bringing together the heart and mind.
These gems are said to aid in living a life of higher consciousness, opening up ones awareness and stimulating the intuition.
The Benefits of Wearing Tanzanite
If you are someone who is looking for support when it comes to being more compassionate and loving with yourself, improving your communication skills, trust, confidence and problem solving then you have found the perfect stone.
Tanzanite stones are said to benefit those in a workplace, as they assist in relieving stress in high pressure environments, helping to calm the wearer down. They also help support stress relief and problem solving in day to day life.
These gemstones can also help the wearer speak more easily and freely from the heart.
Why do we love this stone?
Here at Indie and Harper, we love these natural gemstones for their beautiful blue hues that make us feel calm and peaceful, every time we look at them.
Tanzanite jewels are timeless and make the perfect gift for friends, family, and ourselves!
