Zoisite var. Tanzanite crystal from Merelani Hills, Tanzania
3.6 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm
Superb Tanzanite crystal complete with an attractive mountainous termination, with Diopside and Graphite in association! Large and lustrous, this is a killer specimen for sure. From the one and only location for Tanzanite in the world! First discovered by a farmer and introduced in the market back in 1967, Tanzanite has risen to one of the most popular and valuable stones of our time. Grab as many as you can whenever you can, for once the mines dry out, Tanzanite prices will skyrocket! Don’t miss out! Solid color, though with some damage that does not detract from the quality and value of the piece. Weighing at 141 carats, the price is at less than $8 a carat! Crazy!
