Tanzanite Multi Color zoned crystal
Merelani, Umba Valley, Lelatama Mountains, Arusha Region
3.1 x 2.2 x.9 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
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!
