Prairie Tanzanite / Thulite Lapidary Slab

Prairie Tanzanite (Thulite) Lapidary Slab

Prairie tanzanite is a relatively new and rare variety of the gemstone thulite, a member of the zoisite class of minerals.  Prairie tanzanite was found in the jade fields of Wyoming.  It is mottled pale lavender to pink with green and is in a quartz background.

Thulite is a pink gemstone in the zoisite class of minerals. It is most commonly found in Norway and is named for the mythical Thule, which may be in Norway. The pink is due to magnesium in the mineral. These samples are mottled pink and green.

If you like this material you may also like jade with magnetite or bronzite.

Please enlarge and view the photographs for more detailed views. Shown wet to simulate polish. As with all natural rock, there may be fractures or pits to seal or work around. Each slab has the approximate dimensions listed. I use the longest and widest point and the thinnest, it’s not averaged.

We have worked hard with the lighting and the settings on the camera so that the colors are very accurate. Individual settings may affect color viewing on various devices and I cannot predict what your device will do, but on my computer, they’re dead on for color. I appreciate your business!
