Zoisite Or Yellow Tanzanite
Merelani Mines, Arusha, Tanzania
Thumbnail, 3.1 x 1.4 x 1.3 cm
A very GEMMY, extremely colorful piece of this rare zoisite varietal which seems to turn up only very rarely, in small pockets, at this series of mines and pits famous for blue Tanzanite. This is an excellent piece with extremely glassy luster, better than indicated in the pics and so brilliant that it looks polished (but is not!). Weight 86 carats!
