Majestic Tanzanite with hints of violet and blue echoes the striking winter sky. Discovered in the latter part of the 20th century, in Southern Africa, spiritually speaking it is believed that Tanzanite has the ability to stimulate three chakras: the throat, the third eye and the crown. Tanzanite is also thought to be a positive enhancing gem, amplifying healing at all levels, as well as protecting those who are doing the healing.
Nicotiana a genus of plants in the family Solanaceae, is a member of the Nightshade Family. It is indigenous to the Americas, and among the ancient Maya, the dried leaves of the plant were considered a sacred, supernaturally powerful plant, a primordial medicine or "botanical helper", associated with Maya deities of the earth and sky. Various Nicotiana species, commonly referred to as tobacco plants, are cultivated as ornamental garden plants. Jean Nicot presented the tobacco plant to Queen Catherine de Medicis at the House of Lorraine in 1655, who believed it to be medicinal, a remedy for her intense migrain headaches.
