One of the most spectacular color combinations are these yellow Prehnites on Tanzanite. These are not common and this one displays strong colors of each mineral. Bright lemon yellow Prehnite crystals cover the back and one side of a single Tanzanite. Wow!


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.

Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/t843a.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/t843b.jpg]

Good sized pink Tanzanite crystal. Pinks are uncommon and this one is unique with a dark blue phantom line dividing the pink zone on top and a more purple/pink zone below. There is a chip on a back edge, but the termination is good and it can be display from the front undamaged. Pinks are hard to come by, but for some reason perfect undamaged pinks are even more rare, even the best known fine pink Tanzanite has a chip or two. A beautiful and uncommon Tanzanite.
