Item Description

An EXCELLENT, beautiful and aesthetic tanzanite thumbnail. The two, gemmy and lustrous, parallel-growth tanzanite crystals with sharp terminations exhibit classic, textbook pleochroism. The A and B axes are the beautiful, blue and blue-violet, while the C axis is a rich reddish-brown, nearly a clove-brown, indicative of natural unheated state of color (hard to photo). This is a wonderful, complete all-around and pristine, untreated tanzanite thumbnail with textbook colors and sharp crystal form. 33.61 carats or over 6 grams. Valued $1500
