Hi,

Is my tanzanite real?

I attached some photos of it to this email.

Thank you.

Sincerely,
Kari

Answer
you need to bring it in person to more than one gemologist and It should be established reputable
business that you can trust.... Also I would not keep it out of my sight or leave it overnight.. there Is always a possibility that it has a high-value...and you don't want it swapped out..
I would say it's impossible to rate a stone with these small photo...

I will answer any questions regarding semi-precious stones or precious stones. I will answer questions regarding mounting both semi-precious and precious stones. I can also answer most questions regarding small manufacturing. I can not answer questions regarding casting or fine jewelry.

Experience


I am a small manufacturer of jewelry for semi-precious stones. I have been working in this area for 10 years. Our Major stones are Larimar (from the Caribbean) and Dichroic ( a man made crystal ). The majority of our work is in silver and 14k gold. We do not deal in fine jewelry such as diamonds..
