Zoisite (Var: Tanzanite)
Thumbnail, 1.8 x 1.1 x 0.8 cm
Merelani Hills (Mererani), Lelatema Mts, Arusha Region, Tanzania
A very rare, gemmy and lustrous, yellow tanzanite crystal thumbnail from the Merelani Hills of Tanzania. The internal crazing really adds to the attractiveness of this crystal, next to the gemmy areas. Yellow tanzanite is seldom encountered and is very seldom on the market. This rarity is complete-all-around and pristine. Weighs 16.38 carats.
