Both of these tanzanite stones were advertised GIA tone and saturation vb 6/6 by the seller. I was specifically looking for one for my collection.

Im thinking one on the left appears to be and the one on the right isnt? But im not sure. What do you think?

When choosing, be aware that even if both stones have the same color grade, they have a different cut and carat size and this can cause the color of each stone to appear different. For example the stone on the bottom right has a larger table, therefore allows more light to enter


Get them both.

Yes I am thinking it must be somewhat subjective since they look so different in different lighting. Anyways i cant decide and probably end up keeping both :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Both are beautiful. I bought few in Tucson this past February.
Wish I have bought more, love Tanzanite.
