1.59 cara Tanzanite Cushion

$800

Item sold
 

This stone is a top quality tanzanite measuring 7.09mm x 6.12mmand it is flawlessly clean under 10X magnification. The pricing is about $500/carat and is at my cost, making this is a really great deal.

The color is a fine medium/deep blue with a hint of violet. This would make a great ring stone in a protected mounting or an absolutely fantastic pendant in any mounting. I took this picture on the surface of a CD and that's why the reflections have multiple colors. Kind of neat look I think.

Hi Michael. It's likely that I'll be getting a Tanzanite ring for Christmas and it happens to be almost the same colour as this stone. Do you have another stone like this one? If I get the ring I'd also like the earrings to have the set. If it's possible for you to get one please let me know. Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't have a matching stone to this one. I do have a piece of rough which could cut two matching stones in a bit less intense color. The best cuts for this rough would be as squares or square cushions, as the rough is a long rectangle. I wouldn't be possible to buy a matching set through my wholesale suppliers, as my costs are higher than what I've listed this piece for.

Is the colour more into the purplish or navy blue side? I will have the ring by this weekend just after I have it resized. Is it possible to post a picture of the nugget to see the shade? Thanks a lot.

Sure, here's a picture of the rough stone taken on an overcast day. It's a little more violet than this to my eye...I think the camera makes anything close to blue a bit more blue.

Hi Michael,

Love the stone, but as far as I remember, it's a different shade as the ring is. Maybe it's looking lighter and more into the purplish side because of the camera. Once I have the ring in my hands I will take pics to compare the colours.

Thank you
