On a stormy night in 1967, shattering lightning tore open the night sky and set Mount Kilimanjaro ablaze. While hunting amongst the debris of the still smoking brush fire, a Maasai warrior named Alii Juuwatu noticed that some embers seemed to be scintillating under the moonlight.
He kneeled down and discovered a constellation of thousands of strikingly blue precious stones. Alii entrusted one of the stones to an explorer who first thought that it was corundum. The stone went around the world and wound up at Tiffany’s where it was finally named tanzanite.
Tanzanite gives confidence and stimulates spiritual awakening. It is also said that it brings luck.
A trail of African sandalwood and violet; in the distance, lingering scents of cardamon and myrrh.
