925 Silver Decorated Small Tanzanite Ring
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.
