Interesting little Tanzanite specimens, a rare and typically far more expensive mineral from Tanzania – usually sold as a gemstone.
These are, of course, lower grade pieces. The quality does vary from piece to piece – hence the photos.
Now, what not everyone knows is that most Tanzanite is heated to achieve its colours. Some of these pieces are barely heated, or badly heated – in some pieces you can see the brown natural colour of the stone, rather than the violet blue on some pieces.
We can’t control what you’ll get, unfortunately – they’re a random selection of sizes.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
