The why, the how and the what

Our philosophy

Khazana is the persian word for treasure. Inspired by the bazaars of old Delhi, Khazana was founded in the late 80s and early 90s to bring that concept to Switzerland. Over the years, many of our clients refer to as a modern day 'Ali Baba's cave'.

We also wanted to keep our prices fair and low to make sure everyone can have access to quality products.

All types of goodies from across the Indian subcontinent can be found at our boutique in central Geneva or on our online shop.

925 Silver Faceted Tanzanite Necklace

What is Tanzanite?
The blue variety of the mineral species known as Zoisite. It's a very rare blue-violet gem found in only a small region of Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro.

What makes tanzanite so special?
It's rare to find a naturally blue gem in nature. The main one that most people know is sapphire. But naturally, sapphires are very expensive, in part due to their rarity but also the rich history of the gem. Tanzanite is a great alternative and a relatively lower price (although some tanzanites command far higher prices than equivalent sapphires).

What is the gem's symbolism?
  • Crystal Healing: It's believed in some circles that tanzanite helps with calming the mind and with 'slowing down' one's general demeanour;
  • Chakra: Many believe it to assist in helping to balance the throat chakra and for helping get rid of the heaviness in this region.
