|Third Largest Tanzanite, 12K+ct|
Reportedly it is the third largest Tanzanite ever found. At more than 12,000 cts, it is only the THIRD Largest
Well, that got me thinking...Just how big was the Largest???
|Largest, to date, Tanzanite.|
That is about the size of a brick!!
Then I was thinking. What is the Largest Faceted Tanzanite?
|737+ct of Tanzanite|
737+cts!!! I can only imagine what that one will look like once it has been set.
Tanzanite is a relatively new Gem to collectors. Only having been discovered in 1967, and then made famous by Tiffany & Co marketing.
Only found in one spot on Earth, the foothills of Mt Kilimanjaro, Tanzanite is extremely rare-and reportedly all but mined out. The finding of such a Large piece of rough gives me hope that new Stones will continue to be found-BUT, I am a Hopeless Romantic. Maybe we will see more of pieces like this...
