AF821 - Sapphire $ 2500 SOLD
Winza, Dodoma, Tanzania
miniature - 5 x 3 x 2.8 cm


Sapphire from Winza, Dodoma, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af821a.jpg] Sapphire from Winza, Dodoma, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af821b.jpg] Sapphire from Winza, Dodoma, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af821c.jpg] Sapphire from Winza, Dodoma, Tanzania [db_pics/pics/af821d.jpg]

Cris-crossing blue and pink Sapphire crystals. For my tastes, this is the best specimen I've yet seen from this relatively new find of Sapphire crystals. Individual crystals reach nearly 3cm in length and are nicely translucent to transparent. The matrix is extremely hard; that and the fact that most are cut for gemstones makes finding good specimens from this locality diffcult.

Tansparent 2.5cm Quartz crystal that spears through a Tanzanite crystal. The Quartz is double terminated, though the lower termination is intergrown with Graphite and only partially complete. Well balanced and uncommon Merelani specimen.
