Tanzanite (1): A Rare But Perfect Blue Stone For This 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey!

Published January 21, 2016 by jptan2012

If you have read my 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast, you would know that one of the most recommended cures for this year is wearing a blue stone. This is a cure for most, but not all, to determine whether you should be wearing a blue stone please read the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Feng Shui Forecast.

Once you have determine that you need to wear a blue stone to supplement the energy of the missing water element, you can choose with the different blue stones, however, I believe that there is one stone that will works best for this year and the coming years. I’m talking about the Tanzanite.cristal de tanzanite (Tanzanie)

Tanzanite is a stone discovered in Mererani Hills of Manara Region is Northern Tanzania is 1967. Although Tanzanite is considered as a blue stone it may slight appear to have different colors when viewed under different light conditions. It is this varying color that makes it a perfect stone for this 2016. But before I go explain the last sentence, let me talk more about the physical qualities of a Tanzanite.

When a Tanzanite from initially as a trichroic crystal this means that it has three colors. The said colors are blue (represents water element), with some very light shades of violet (represents fire), and brown (which normally represents wood but because in this kind of formation it represents earth). When mined or ‘harvested’ before making it available commercially, gems are usually heat treated to bring out the most beautiful color of the stone. Tanzanite goes through this process as well, it takes out the brownish color, and retains only the blue color, sometimes with very minimal traces of violet, which more often than not are only visible to the eye of an expert.tanzanite-grades

Sometimes, although very rare, a heat treated Tanzanite will have a green hue, this green tanzanite are considered more valuable than the regular one. Some say that there are pink tanzanites. I personally haven’t seen one.

It is also important to know that when gem stones are mined, like the Tanzanite, they usually come up as one whole big block, the outer parts are considered the skin and will have the lowest quality, as you go deeper to the center, they are the ones that are considered as the higher quality. As mentioned earlier, to bring out the deepest blue of a Tanzanite, they are usually heat treated, and depending on the quality of color that came out, they may be considered as polished raw, high grade, gem quality. There are different subs – categories but I rather not go into that. In some cases, a Tanzanite is mined or harvested as a high grade gem quality, because of metamorphic occurrences underground, the natural blue of a Tanzanite is brought out underground, this is considered as the highest grade gem quality, and much coveted. But that is not to say that the Tanzanite that is heat treated above ground is inferior. A Tanzanite is a Tanzanite, and there is no Tanzanite that can be considered as low quality. That’s how precious they are.Tanzanite

Furthermore, Tanzanite is only mined in one place in the whole world, and that is in Mererani Hills in Tanzania. So a Tanzanite is considered really rare and naturally it is not expected to last very long. This makes a Tanzanite even more expensive and much coveted. A person who collects semi – precious stones to high quality gems will definitely wish for a Tanzanite.

However, these physical qualities of a Tanzanite are not what make it a much coveted especially for this 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey. But it is because it is a very good stone to have regardless of the year, although again it is a perfect stone for the year. Allow me to explain but I would like to say that it is better that you understand the energies of the year by reading the first part of the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey Forecast by clicking here.

tanzanite2As mentioned, the year’s chart show that this is an imbalanced year, water is missing and fire is strong as well as metal. Most people will need to have the energies of the water element and blue colored stones usually represent this. However, water destroys fire and while Feng Shui experts are saying we need water, a lot of people will naturally have the water element in their sign, so for some wearing blue stone would mean a high increase in the water energies, and thus destroying the year’s natural energies. This is fine, because the year’s natural energies is predominantly fire and it will not be destroyed but it will be tamed, but since the a Tanzanite as very slight hues of violet, which represents the fire element, harmoniously blending with its blue, then this becomes a great symbolic representation of harmonious blending of your ‘artificial’ water energies with that of the year’s natural predominant energy! This is also why it is a perfect stone for people who need the water energy but cannot not have a small fire energy. Furthermore, having the color brown that is in the case of the Tanzanite represents the earth energy and a gem being natural earth energy, this then nurtures the metal energy of the year, which for the year represents money or wealth.

Furthermore, a Tanzanite is a stone that aurically boosts one’s immune system and is quite good for various physical ailments. On top of it, it helps alleviates and prevent psychological and mental problems, both of which are illnesses that are not as easily recognized. Plus the blue of a Tanzanite, especially, the one of the gem quality is close to blue of Medicine Buddha. Combined effects of these two qualities make it a perfect stone to help us manage the ruling Illness and Accident energy of the year. This with the Illness Suppression Amulet should help us avoid getting affected by the effects of the Illness Star.

Illness Suppression Amulet3

The Illness Suppression Amulet or Illness Protection Amulet is a special highly consecrated amulet made by my Guru Lama as a cure for the Illness Star a star that also causes accidents. It has the energies of the Medicine Buddha, Namgyalma Buddha, Amitayus Buddha and White Umbrella Goddess. Furthermore, the small black thing you see at the bottom of the glass amulet holder is a Dharma Pill, which is made from a second – class relic of a confirmed holy lama. It also has a small amount of ash from the last Medicine Buddha holy initiation conducted by my Guru Lama, and aside from individual special consecration, the whole amulet was further consecrated under the Tooth Relic of Shakyamuni Buddha.

My next post shall talk about why the Tanzanite is also a good stone even beyond 2016.

Incidentally, since I have started my blog, especially the ones that talks about the use of crystals, people have been asking me where they can get their crystals or semi – precious stones or even precious ones. I normally refer them to various suppliers depending on the stone they need or want. However, recently I was quite fortunate to come across a FB page that says crystals, they are called Crystals and Gold. I don’t really know the owner, but looking at their pictures it do seems that they have good authentic natural crystals (not fake one), the ones that have a prices indicated seems to be very reasonable, actually they are very affordable and low compared to other sellers. You can visit their site just look for it. I have referred several readers and they seem very happy with the quality and the price. I just hope they still have Tanzanites!

Again to better understand the 2016 Year of the Fire Monkey it will be good to read all the forecast. I know it is quite long but it is important for you to see the big picture.
