On a fairly regular basis I come across gems that have been poorly commercial or native cut which I think would be ideal for recutting in a precision design. This is one such gem. This is a nice big tanzanite with great colour and potential but unfortunately is has been let down but very poor commerical cutting. It never ceases to amaze (but not surprise) me that these commercial cutting operations just don't seem to give a damn about making a gem look the best it possibly can. They operate under a totally different mentality which is all about speed and weight retention. Anyway, I could go on and on about this and indeed I do here where I discuss this at length if you want to have a read.

Now, this tanzanite gem is listed here with the intention of it being a good candidate for recutting but you can most certainly purchase it as is. Recutting would greatly improve the beauty of this gem and close up that big window in the centre of the stone. If you want to discuss having it recut then contact me and lets chat.

I am a big lover of natural tanzanite and this gem really does it for me! This natural tanzanite is an extremely fine example of the rare and beautiful trichoric crystal, exhibiting the three colours of blue, purple and green. You see, tanzanite is often heated to remove these lovely natural colours to induce a vivid and quite striking blue hue. Whilst these blues are really really gorgeous in their own right, sometimes I think it is a shame to do that to a gem that has an awesome natural colouration already. This gem has been finely cut and polished in the classic Emerald Cut design and I particularly like the proportions and I think it would be a superb ring stone. Like #202028, this natural tanzanite has what they call in the old parlance, a very fine water.

Natural unheated tanzanites are stunning gemstones and are among the rare trichroic crystals. Trichroic essentially means that they exhibit three different colours in three different directions. In the case of tanzanite this is a blue, purple and green and they play together in a way that makes the tanzanite a beguiling and fascinating gemstone. This particular gem is an outstanding example of a natural tanzanite and has been finely cut and polished in the classic Emerald Cut design which makes it ideal for any jewellery setting. It has excellent clarity and what I call a fine water. A very very beautiful tanzanite.

Here is a very fine and rare gem! Natural tanzanite of this high caliber are exceedingly scarce because most tanzanite you will find in the marketplace which has that striking vivid blue has been heated. They heat the tanzanite to remove the wonderful natural hues to produce that incredible blue colour. Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with that however sometimes when a superb natural tanzanite like this one comes along it would be a crime to heat it and it should be preserved in it's natural untreated state.

This natural tanzanite exhibits a remarkable trichroism showing teal blue, green and violet hues. The pictures really do not do justice to this gem and simply cannot capture the wonderful interplay of hues which come alive when you view the stone in the hand. All I can say is that if you like the pictures you will LOVE the stone. This is a large natural tanzanite with excellent clarity and the perfect mix of colours. Very highly recommended.
