ML00067 - Zoisite var. Tanzanite
Merelani Hills, Umba Valley, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania
thumbnail - 2.8 x 2.0 x 0.9 cm
$ 4000.00

I hesitate to call this specimen Tanzanite due to it lacking the defining blue color. It would be more appropriate to call this gem Zoisite. It exhibits pronounced trichroic porperties, changing in color from yellow to pink to violet when viewed from different angles.
