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 a slight chip on the terminated edge. 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 specimen is natural, and not heat treated.

This crystal is approximately 1.25cm x 1cm x .4cm. You will also receive a free 'perky' display box and a label with the mineral name and the locale where it was mined.
