This specimen consists of a single orthorhombic prismatic Tanzanite crystal that is in very good condition. A small amount of breakage extends upward from the base in one small area, but the rest of the crystal shows no damage. Its form is very good, with relatively well-defined edges and striated but clean faces that possess a vitreous luster. Like most Tanzanite that is not heat-treated, it has a pale blue-violet coloration that fades to a pale brown towards its base. The crystal is transparent and generally clear, though it does contain several internal fractures.
