Zoisite Var Tanzanite

ID: CC1649

A brilliantly strange formation of Tanzanite crystals from the Merelani Hill diggings, Tanzania. The Zoisite var Tanzanite crystal group displays a parent crystal supporting a number of further crystals grown from one side in a fan-like formation. The Tanzanite crystals are thinly bladed in habit with well formed terminations. The colour is a translucent white at the root of the crystal cluster grading at the terminations to a pastel violet.
