TZ100 - Magnesio-axinite $ 950 (=~ £ 612)
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania
small cabinet - 7 x 3.5 x 1.3 cm


Magnesio-axinite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz100a.jpg] Magnesio-axinite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz100b.jpg] Magnesio-axinite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz100c.jpg]

Large Magnesioaxinite crystal with exceptionally good form and mostly undamaged. You have to look at 10-15 of these specimens to even find one that is totally beaten up, as most are just incomplete shards and partial crystals. This one is exceptional in that is both of good crystal form and has large size. The white material is fine acicular Tremolite, and about halfway up the crystal there is a groove that contains a larger Tremolite, just big enough to show its green color. The left side has some attached Graphite.


TZ101 - Tanzanite $ 6000 (=~ £ 3862)
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania
thumbnail - 2.5 x 1.3 x 1.0 cm


Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz101a.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz101b.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz101c.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz101d.jpg]

Fancy colored Tanzanite that is pink in one direction (wide front side), lighter and more yellowish on the narrow side, with a peach coloration down the top (C-axis). Pink crystals are very rare to begin with and even more rare in this quality - most pinks I've seen have been fairly beat up with more damage than the typical edge chatter seen on most Tanzanite crystals. This one is nearly perfect with just one ding on one edge. Bright vibrant pink color with a more clear zone in the top center. I have seen similar crystals offered at major mineral shows for $9,000 or more, and those with some damage. There has been temporal production of these, most or all from one mine in block D, over the past one or two years and I am told they have not been found previously in 20 years. If you're looking for a rare and unique Merelani crystal, you've got one here.


TZ102 - Tanzanite $ 1800 (=~ £ 1159)
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania
thumbnail - 2.7 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm


Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz102a.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz102b.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz102c.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz102d.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz102e.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz102f.jpg]

Fine quality, trichroic Tanzanite crystal. This is a great crystal for this size range with thickness, good color, high transparency, and is undamaged and complete. Highly recommended.


TZ103 - Tanzanite $ 1200 (=~ £ 772)
Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania
thumbnail - 2.0 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm


Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz103a.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz103b.jpg] Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz103c.jpg]

Fancy colored Tanzanite that is pink in one direction (wide front side), light yellow to clear on the narrow side, with a peach coloration down the top (C-axis). Undamaged crystal which for some reason is hard to come by with the pink crystals.
