TZ179 - Prehnite, Graphite on Tanzanite $ 1800
Merelani Hills, Arusha Region, Tanzania
thumbnail - 3 x 2.5 x 1.8 cm


Prehnite, Graphite on Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz179a.jpg] Prehnite, Graphite on Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz179b.jpg] Prehnite, Graphite on Tanzanite from Merelani Hills, Arusha Region, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/tz179c.jpg]

Highly aesthetic and colorful specimen of a bright blue Tanzanite crystal partially covered by yellow Prehnite. Such specimens of yellow Prehnite on Tanzanite are uncommon, but even when found, they do not often form in such and showy manner as this. Note that there is Calcite and tiny hexagons of Graphite mixed among the Prehnite. Although the Calcite does not detract from the main display face, it does affect the beauty of the Prehnite when looking at the back and one side. I did not want to remove the Graphite crystals which would come off with the removal ofthe Calcite, however if you are not concerned about losing the Graphite, the overall aesthetics could be easily enhanced by removal of the Calcite.
