A very sharp TN specimen of the rare yttrium phosphate xenotime, with excellent luster and a pleasing medium brown color. What makes this TN even even rarer is the fact that we have two crystals in parallel growth (don’t think it’s a twin) which is very unique since most of the time the crystals occur as singles. Super TN!
Location: Ibitiara, Bahia, Brazil
Dimensions: 2.9 x 1.2 x .7cm
A very gemmy zoizite crystal (this one has been treated like all tanzanites are) with a wonderful termination, excellent luster and the trichroic color change. There is a microscopic ding on one side of the C face, otherwise it is a perfect and facetable TN!
Location: Merelani, Arusha, Tanzania
Dimensions: 1.7 x .7 x .6cm
