These Zoisite crystals from Alchuri are delicate and attractive. The thin blades are silvery-gray, the natural color of Zoisite, compared to the rare blues and purples you see from Tanzania. The luster on these crystals is good, and they are terminated. Because they are thin and gemmy, with this very nice coloring, the Zoisites are actually much better in person than they photograph.
