Thanks, Coati. I learn something new everydayDate: 2/18/2009 11:14:25 PM
It''s really hard to say from these pics. Did you see the stones in person?
Tanzanite is heat treated, because it comes out of the ground brown.
I think they charge around $500/ct on the gemshopping network, and they have some really beautiful material. Do you have cable? They show that channel 24 hours a day, and much of what they show is tanzanite in large sizes.Date: 2/18/2009 11:04:46 PM
The pics are not the greatest. Anyway, they''re asking for USD1,200 per carat. Seems a bit steep to me.
They also say there''s no such thing as an untreated tanzanite, though I am not sure yet what kind of treatment these stones have undergone.
Pls let me have your thoughts and opinions.
