Tanzanite Gemstone Art Print, December Birthstone, archival 8.5 x 11 print of my own original illustration.

I was a rockhound since early childhood and studied these earth beauties until I eventually became a GIA Graduate Gemologist. As an artist, I had been wanting to capture the beauty of the stones for a long while and finally began to immortalize their lovely colours, unique shine and mesmerizing structure on paper.

Tanzanite is a fairly rare gemstone, only found so far in Tanzania. Its crystals have a wonderful property (called pleochroism) that show different colours when viewed from various angles, from deep blues, to purple to a smoky brown (strongly purple or violet/periwinkle gems are usually heated to get rid of the brown). Tanzanite is a beautiful but soft stone. It has been chosen as the December birthstone for several years (along with blue Zircon).

Printed with archival ink on 8.5" x 11" archival fine art matte paper. There is a border of approximately 2 to 3 inches around the image.

Shipped carefully with a protective, rigid sleeve and padded envelope.

*Color may vary a bit from monitor to monitor. .
