B148 - Calcite on Tanzanite $ 900
Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania
miniature - 4.0 x 1.3 x 0.6 cm


Calcite on Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/b148a.jpg] Calcite on Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/b148b.jpg] Calcite on Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/b148c.jpg]

Gemmy, complete Tanzanite crystal. Top luster and undamaged. When you see a loose single Tanzanite crystal it's easy to assume it was broken off matrix during mining, however the calcite on the bottom and backside of this crystal demonstrates that this crystal detached from the matrix naturally after formation. I think this is a very good value for a crystal of this size and quality.
