Discovered only in 1967, Tanzanite's ability to shift color has made it a popular gem. It is credited by many with an association to the throat chakra and its sephirotic double Daath. In this line of thinking, it is associated with linking the higher intelligence and intuition to the ability to communicate effectively and with clarity of thinking in general.
This eye-catching, translucent Tanzanite of 23 carats ranges from light blue to the darkest indigo, capturing the full range of the color blue. It is delicately wrapped in sterling wire, exposing as much of the gem as possible to the viewer's gaze and the wearer's skin. Measuring 15x29x9mm, the rough stone is untreated, retaining its pleasingly natural quality.
