Tanzanite Multi Color zoned crystal
stock #14.1-042
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
Arusha Region, Tanzania
3.1 x 2.2 x.9 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $925
Spring 2014

A sharp gemmy crystal with a strong color change and dramatic zoning. Top grade glassy luster and a lot prettier in person, this shows color changes from yellow to green in the top part, and blue, purple and red in the lower part that is hard to appreciate in photos. The overall condition is fine, there are some small contact rough spots on the backside that are not easy to see and are completely invisible from the display side. The front of the specimen is clean, sharp and undamaged. Far better in person and a great value for such a clean example!
Tanzanite (very fine, zoned blue-green Zoisite)
stock #A 148-104
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
Arusha Region, Tanzania
5.3 x 1.5 x 1 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $2250


An very impressive, sizable and sharp crystal with great luster and strong color change wit the added feature of a well defined internal color zone stripe that is very rare. Displays great with good clarity, only one very tiny edge chip is noted that is almost invisible to the naked eye, and not visible from the best display side. The most impressive feature is the distinct color changes as this is rotated, The color is an intense blue, then a zoned green, rich purple and from along the c axis a strong red. With good backlight a small yellow zone is also seen. With the costs of even average gem Tanzanite being incredibly high, this is an ecxeptional piece at a great price.
