This is a natural(genuine) Tanzanite stone. Natural means that it is NOT SYNTHETIC OR SIMULATED! It is a medium tone blue-purple in color. All my Tanzanite is natural and is from older stock around 1991-1992.
This one weighs approximately 2.05cts. It is a 9x7mm oval cut and it is 10x Loupe clean, there are no inclusions. The pics may show some dust because they are so close up, but the stone is not damaged at all.
Tanzanite comes from only one location that is known of so far and that is from Tanzania. It is a much rarer stone than Diamond. Diamond is made just from Carbon, one of the most plentiful elements on this earth. Diamond can be lab created easily, but Tanzanite cannot. Most fake Tanzanites are simlulants like quartz, glass, CZ and crystals.
To make sure that you don't buy a fake, use a dichroscope on the gem. Tanzanite is a pleochroic gem(has multi colors like green, blue, purple, green-blue, purple-blue, gray-blue etc... when looked at from different angles). The dichroscope will split the colors into two different windows. The two colors it splits into are just for the Tanzanite. The colors should be a purple or purple pink or green in one window and a blue in the other window. Sometimes one window is purple and the other is green. There are also Tanzanite gem filters as well that will show the Tanzanite as a pinkish-orange.
Garnet, Cubic Zirconium, Spinel, and glass will have no color split at all.
The pictures are taken as close to the stone's color as possible, but realize that not all monitors show the same color clarity.
The pictures are a little dark, the stone is more of a lighter purplish color and more of a medium tone.
