DescriptionGemstone: Tanzanite - 105 Cts.
Merelani Hills, Umba Valley
Lelatema Mountains, Arusha Region
The largest stone that this lone piece of gemmy rough Tanzanite yielded is this 105 carat octagonal phenomenon. Cut to maintain maximum weight, it was at first expected this stone would only end up some 70 to 90 carats, but this elongated cushion cut shaped gem with designer faceting of such magnitude takes the cake. The crown features a large viewing window with as step cut, while the pavilion showcases a most intricate unique cut for supreme effect. The intense blue body color is another distinguishing attribute, and there are rich areas of purple and flashes of red. In excellent condition and eye-clean, this massive example is without question one of the biggest and best Tanzanite gemstones likely to be seen.
