Zoisite (the scientific name for Tanzanite) is often called a “Single Generation Gemstone”. Most gemologists agree that this gemstone will be extinct in approximately 24 months. It is found in only one spot on earth, Tanzania Africa, and they are on their last area to mine it ('D' Block). No other sources for this beautiful gemstone have been found, making it a solid investment.
Tanzanite Legend and Lore*
Tanzanite is purported to be a wonderful tool to encourage recovery from severe illness or stress. Some believe it strengthens the immune system, regenerates cells, and treats the heart, spleen, pancreas, lungs, head, throat, and chest. The stone is also thought by some to be a great detoxifier. Others believe it has the ability to neutralize over acidification and reduce inflammation, stimulates fertility and heals diseases of the ovaries. It has been said that it is extremely beneficial to wear or place the tanzanite on the body in direct contact with the skin, where appropriate for long periods of time, as it is a slow acting stone.
