Tanzanite’s only known source in the world is a 4km strip of land near Mount Kilimanjaro, northern Tanzania. The biggest tanzanite in the world is a single large crystal of 16,839 carats, well over 3kg. It has been named “The Mawenzi” after Kilimanjaro’s second highest peak. Tanzanite is becoming increasingly recognised as an heirloom due to its very limited supply and rarity. Because tanzanite is only found in one small area in the world, and it is unlikely to ever be found anywhere else, gemologists believe that, in the next 10 to 20 years, no more tanzanite will be found. After it becomes depleted, there won’t be any more first time owners of the gem, and all tanzanite will become precious heirlooms. Tanzanite is believed to have been formed about 585 million years ago, but it was only discovered in 1967. Though more affordable than diamonds, and around a third of the price of sapphires, tanzanite is an extremely valuable gem, with tanzanite rings, tanzanite necklaces and tanzanite earrings becoming investment pieces, appreciating every year. This single, limited source renders tanzanite at least a thousand times more rare than diamonds. Tanzanite is the suggested gift for the 24th wedding anniversary. Tanzanite has been attributed with qualities of good luck and prosperity, and associated with celebrations of new life and new beginnings. Tanzanite is said to have many mystical and healing powers. It is believed to uplift and open the heart, and is also believed to assist in metaphysical healing.

Amethyst’s ability to expand the higher mind also enhances one’s creativity and passion. It strengthens the imagination and intuition, and refines the thinking processes. It helps in the assimilation of new ideas, putting thought into action, and brings projects to fruition. It is a talisman of focus and success. In nature, Amethyst at times forms in combination with other minerals. In addition to the properties of Amethyst outlined in this article, the following varieties possess additional qualities.
