JBTANZ-18 - Tanzanite - $ 35000 SOLD Merelani Mine, Arusha, Tanzania miniature, 54 x 43 x 29 mm This specimen was part of a small but choice lot mined in the summer of 2010, that featured unusually intense color in natural (unheated) crystals. It is riveting for its gemminess and intense blue and purple colors. The area of gem quality cutting rough is very high in proportion to the volume, and so a fair amount of value is present in the form of rough for cut gems. www.irocks.com/...

Star Rose Quartz Star ☞ Rose quartz is opaque to translucent microcrystalline quartz of pink to rose-red colour. Some rose quartz contains microscopic rutile crystals which are oriented at right angles to the c-axis of the rose quartz in three directions, each 120 degrees apart. When viewed at a specific angle with a source of light a star-effect is visible. This is known as asterism.

This is a very powerful spiritual tool ❤
