Single Tanzanite crystal with a Pyrite crystal attached to one side of the crystal. Pyrite is not unusual from Merelani, but Tanzanite specimens with attached pyrite are uncommon, especially those with the pyrite perched so aesthetically on the Tanzanite. The Tanzanite is also a bi-color with a yellow termination over a blue body color. Unusual addition to a Merelani suite.

AF763 - Tanzanite $ 4500
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mtns., Arusha Region, Tanzania

Glassy bi-color crystal, blue base with a yellow termination. This crystal has superb luster and unusually uniform shape, retaining an even 8mm thickness all the way from the base to the termination. The yellow zone is facet grade and the blue zone, while having some internal fractures, is still mostly transparent - you can read through most of the crystal. Just a few tiny, trivial nicks otherwise totally undamaged. This is one of, if not the best of these yellow/blue bi-color crystals I have ever seen.
