This is an absolutely beautiful 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 has its culet ever so slightly skewed to one side but it isn't enough to significantly affect the look of the stone. Overall beautiful stone.
