Tanzanite Thumbnail Specimen from Merelani Hills, Tanzania


This is a small tanzanite crystal thumbnail specimen from Merelani Hills, Arusha, Tanzania. Tanzanite is only found in this area of Tanzania, making it a very rare and valuable mineral. This specimen is terminated with light carbon inclusions within. The Tanzanian government is beginning to limit the export of tanzanite, so this mineral is only going to continue to appreciate in value over time.

This crystal is approximately 12mm x 2mm x 6mm wide. You will also receive a free 'perky' display box and a label with the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
