Tanzanite And Its Magical Properties

Updated on April 19, 2012


Stones this day and age have several different uses. In Paganism based religions such as Wicca and other paths stones and crystals have several different uses like with health and magical properties. They are used in rituals and for offerings. Tanzanite is a beautiful Lavender stone with a color that is hard not to look at. Once glimpsed at it's difficult to look away. It's also a stone that has uses you may have never heard of before.


Tanzanite is actually named after it's location. This beautiful piece was discovered in the year of 1967 at the foot of Mount Kilamanjaro in Tanzania Africa. Sadly mines in Tanzanite are nearly depleted so Tanzania will soon be no longer available to us.


Crystals are indeed used for healing, this act is called crystal healing. There are actually professional people who offer this alternative healing, called alternative healers. Those who follow Paganism like paths will use the stones themselves with out the help of professionals. Keep in mind that no matter what you are using gemstones for it is important to cleanse and charge the stones. Whether it is allowing the stone to sit in the light of the moon, soak it in sea salt and water, or letting it just rest in sea salt. Sometimes you can just let the stones pass through the smoke of incense. Then charge them with the energy that you will be needing it for.

Tanzanite will be helpful with any kind of stress related illness, especially high blood pressure. It is said to restore vitality to one's body, like to the hair and even the skin. It's even said to slow down the aging process.

Magic Properties

Tanzanite is a stone that will help one to slow down, to take it easy. Therefore it is the perfect stone for those who work too much, for those who really need a time off. It will bring more success to several areas of your life. It can balance out areas in your life, including your personality if you have any extreme personality problems.

This stone is a stress reliever, it restores harmony. This is a magical stone, promoting spiritual awareness and insight. This stone also aids with ridding of negative energy.

Tanzanite is a great meditation stone. It's said to help make someone more sensitive to psychic experiences, meaning that they may happen more happen with someone who uses this stone. Make sure that when using Tanzanite that your inner energy is positive otherwise you may end up incurring negative karma.

It's also said that this stone can help one to connect psychically to ancient wisdom, like ancient cultures for example, cultures that have not changed for thousands of years.

This is a stone of the zodiac signs Virgo and Sagittarius. If one dreams of this stone its said to mean that a period will come of calm and quiet.

This stone is great for our Chakras. Such as being placed on the third eye, it can open the third eye. It will also be used to center the throat chakra too.


I hope that this hub has left you more interested in stones than what you were prior to reading it. Tanzanite sure is beautiful and it sure is a shame that it will soon be no longer available to us. That does not mean that it should not be mentioned because it still has a meaningful history, it still has been used and there are still those of us out there that has this stone as a part of our collections.

      This is pretty interesting because for graduation my mother got me a expensive necklace and then we decided to back to the jewelry store and exchange it for another necklace. While I was browsing around looking at all the pretty diamonds my eye caught a small lavender stone and I instantly fell in love and had to have it. I was so drawn to it that I had completely stopped looking at all the big glittery diamonds and I was solely focused on that tiny stone. This article definitely reaffirms my love for the stone
