A beautiful, small, very gemmy and lustrous, triangular, purple tanzanite crystal from Tanzania. The right side of the crystal is contacted, but you really do not notice it. Uncut tanzanite crystals are very difficult to obtain today, as the government has really clamped down on export of uncut crystals. 0.8 x 0.7 x 0.4 cm
