Description

It is all too rare to find a tanzanite floater specimen so this complex intergrowth of numerous crystals is exceptional. Featuring at around 15 individual gemmy lavender colored terminations surrounding a laterally positioned crystal group in the center. 

The underside is completely mineralized and sparkles due to the many individual crystal surfaces covering what was previously attached to the host rock.

The color is unique without the typical blue compliment with a distinctive pleochroism when viewed from the various sides, the color disappears completely. This specimen is undamaged.
