Purple Tanzanite
from the Merelani Mines

This tanzanite is a rare color of zoisite from the famous Merelani mines in Tanzania. Stout purple tanzanite with flashes of pink. The strong color, precision cut, and impressive size add up to one impressive specimen.

In the last few years we have seen more fancy colors coming out of the Merelani deposit. A departure from the classic blues, we have see greens, yellows, pinks, and purples like this one. The fancy colors often come out of the ground with no need of heat treatment, making them much more rare than the common blue hues.
