Tanzanite, Merelani, Tanzania: I've picked up several lots of tanzanite and can offer them at excellent prices. Many of these are small, making them affordable for people with a modest budget. I can get larger crystals on request, but do not keep them in stock simply due to the cost. Let me know if you are looking for a larger one, I can probably get it at a pretty good price. Acrylic base included with each specimen.
