1.15 ct. Green Zoisite (Tanzanite)

Color:  Medium Dark Very Slightly Bluish-Green Clarity:  Eye Clean to Slightly Included
Origin:  Merelani, Tanzania Cut:  Oval
Treatments:  None Measurements:  8 x 5.2 mm

Widely known as Tanzanite in the typical violet-blue color, Zoisite is actually found in a whole spectrum of hues.  One of the rarest and most attractive of these is a rich, bright green that is a natural shade - remember that most traditional Tanzanite is heated.  In fact when this rough was first found it was so distinctive as to merit discussion of a new variety name - 'Gubelinite' after the famed gemologist.  Though these plans fell through, the material remains exceptionally attractive and sought after in the market place - now sometimes referred to as 'chrome' Tanzanite.  This lovely stone is a bright and brilliant example of this rare color - a pleochroic deep green just touched with an attractive bluish modifier.  Nice size for these - we rarely have stones in excess of one carat with this nice of a color.
