1.49 ct. Purple Tanzanite

Color:  Dark Purple Clarity:  Eye Clean
Origin:  Merelani, Tanzania Cut:  Custom Rectangle
Treatments:  None Measurements:  7.4 x 6.4 mm

We simply cannot overstate how nice the purple hue of this gem is.  Think the very best color imaginable in purple Sapphire and you are close.  Perhaps a world class Amethyst, but even then you can't achieve this luster and brilliance with a low RI material like Amethyst.  This is an unheated stone orientated to capture the intense purple trichoic color that you sometimes see in rough Tanzanite crystals.  Far, far better and deeper than we have captured in the photos.  Add in a precision US cut and you have one of the most impressive 'fancy' color Tanzanites that we have offered.  Fantastic gem.
