Tanzanite is the blue and violet variety of zoisite, which belongs to the epidote mineral group. Tiffany & Co named this stone in honor of Tanzania, Africa - where it was discovered at the base of their largest mountain Kilimanjaro, making its debut into the gem world in 1967. It is believed that this stone can help with breaking old karmic patterns. It encourages optimism, inspires new direction, and can be used in the aid of healing for both healers, and those who are seeking healing for themselves.
