TANZANITE WEIGHT & MEASUREMENT
- Measurements show the tanzanite’s minimum diameter and depth, measured in millimetres. The measurements are noted as length x width x depth.
- The “face-up” measurements of length and width are the best way to judge a colored stones actual size – as opposed to carat weight which can change depending on the variations in each stones proportions.
- Tanzanite Directs ‘s gemologists hand-select only premium cut stones which are symmetrical, smoothly polished, and even in color and light reflection.
Tanzanite Direct separates our tanzanite into four color groups.
- The lighter the color of the tanzanite – the more commonly it is found.
- The richer and more vibrant the color, the rarer and more expensive the tanzanite.
- Due to its unique crystal structure, tanzanite is one of only two known gemstones to clearly show two colors at once. As a result, a tanzanite can never be purely blue or violet colored – always a combination of the two.
- Darker tanzanite does not mean better tanzanite – it means rarer. Beauty is subjective and the right color for you is a personal choice.
- “Clarity” means the number of inclusions: any natural cracks, features or flaws within a tanzanite gemstone.
- Only flawless loose tanzanite gemstones, with no inclusions and the highest GIA Clarity grade of “Eye Clean”- which is commonly known as “flawless”- are sold by Tanzanite Direct .
