Zoisite var. Tanzanite - gem crystal
stock #19.1-852
Merelani Hills, Lelatama Mountains, Simanjiro District
Manyara Region, Tanzania
2.6 x 1.1 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1300
new year 2021

Fine thumbnail Tanzanite with the very best intense blue color. Excellent transparency best appreciated in person, this is an excellent grade and and in super condition. We selected this from a large parcel of the 2019 gem production looking for crystals that would be a shame to cut. This one is 25.6 Carats. This crystal has one clean contact on an edge and is broken only on the base where it was attached, the termination and faces are perfect. What may look like bruising in some photos is only internal reflections seen inside the glassy faces. Some nice thumbnail crystals can be found by hunting in a large mineral show but very few ever have this color saturation and quality.
