This is sensational - a deep purple blue color. Good cut and very good clarity. The gem is beautiful regardless of the not 100% solid saturation which can be seen in the photo. It is a shallow cut gem with a slight window which always disappears with clever setting - and it is a bargain! Please note there is some reflection of camera equipment in a couple of the images which gives dark tones to the facets that do not exist. With the extortionate price of Tanzanite at the moment a good value gem is hard to find - a perfect cut, perfect saturation and clarity is costing the earth!
Please consider the level of magnification of this gem which is way beyond the 10 times magnification used for grading - we use a Nikon camera and top of the range Macro lens and a light tent. So some of the flaws you may see in the photo you will not even see with a magnifier. The certificate for the gemstone will be included in the sale and it was certified by a friend of ours who is a Fellow of the Gemmological Association of Great Britain.
