Tanzanite Minimum 1.00ct 10x5mm Marquise, Merelani Spirit Cut(Tm). Mined In Tanzania.
Born some 585 million years ago, Tanzanite has only been known to the world for less than half a century. Its birthplace in the shadows of Tanzania's Merelani Hills remains the single source for this gem of extraordinary beauty, color and rarity. Today, we are pleased to introduce a custom cutting design of the highest order for this most treasured gem: the Merelani Spirit Cut. Not only is this a very time consuming cutting design to complete, but its design lends itself to greater stone loss than seen with many other cuts. Only fashioned by the finest, most skilled lapidaries, the Merelani Spirit Cut embodies the essence of its birthplace. Featuring 76 precision cut facets and mirror image symmetry, the Merelani Spirit Cut(TM) is available exclusively at Jewelry Television and jtv.com.
