Here is a rare and gorgeous Tanzanite! It is a natural bicolor stone with sliver purple and silver green with flashes of yellow! The colors come from the natural pleochroic nature of the material. The stone was oriented while faceting to display 2 color simultaneously for 2 different axis! This created a stunning and irresistible effect! When these fancy colored Tanzanites come out of the ground, they do not benefit from heat treatment, so they are completely natural. The cut is a step emerald shape that is dazzling in hand. The stone has excellent clarity and will make a stunning piece of jewelry! Don’t miss out on this lovely rarity!
Tanzanite is described as the blue/purple variety of Zoisite. However, it is also said that Tanzanite can only come from Tanzania from a few specific mines. Once other color Zoisite was found at the Tanzanite localities, they began to call them Fancy colored Tanzanite. Truly, blue or purple Zoisite should be Tanzanite, and any other colors should be referred to as Zoisite. And any color Zoisite from Tanzania should be referred to as Tanzanite or Fancy Tanzanite. But to keep it simple, Fancy Tanzanite sounds pretty and it’s a good name for this material. Enjoy!
