This is a sharply terminated, very gemmy crystal of cornflower blue tanzanite from the Merelani Hills in Arusha, Tanzania. The crystal is strongly pleochroic - that means it appears to be different colors when viewed from different angles. When viewed from the front it is a deep, rich dark blue; from the side it is an intriguing royal purple. Because it is so beautifully crystallized, this crystal shows off this hallmark characteristic very clearly. Also, this is a totally natural crystal - unlike the majority of tanzanites on the market, it is not heat-treated. No damage.
