This is a really stunning tanzanite mixed cut oval. The colour is deep violet-blue, a bit too violet to make it top colour, but a gorgeous shade. Medium to dark colour and beautiful eye-clean material. It would make a good-sized, impressive ring and is big enough for a pendant. Because of the pleochroic nature of the stone, the cost and scarcity of the rough, tanzanites tend to come in very odd proportions. This one is a bit of a thin oval and has its culet ever so slightly skewed to one side. Overall a lovely and beautiful stone.
