Tanzanite 15mm Trillion shape 12.80 carat  1 pc Synthetic 

Trillion Shape

  • Appearance: A trillion-shaped tanzanite features a triangular cut with three equally long sides. This shape enhances the gemstone's brilliance and color, giving it a modern and dynamic look.
  • Cut: The trillion cut is known for its sharp, pointed edges and typically has 31 to 50 facets, which maximize the gemstone’s sparkle and light dispersion

Synthetic Tanzanite

Synthetic tanzanite, also known as lab-created or lab-grown tanzanite, is produced in laboratories rather than mined from the earth. These stones are created using methods that mimic the natural geological processes, resulting in gemstones with similar physical, chemical, and optical properties to natural tanzanite.

Characteristics of Synthetic Tanzanite:

  1. Color:
    • Synthetic tanzanite can exhibit the same range of colors as natural tanzanite, from deep blue to violet. The color is often more consistent and can be produced without the natural zoning (color banding) found in some natural stones.
  2. Clarity:
    • Lab-created tanzanite usually has excellent clarity, with fewer inclusions compared to natural stones, making them eye-clean and highly transparent.
  3. Hardness:
    • Tanzanite has a hardness of 6 to 7 on the Mohs scale, which applies to both natural and synthetic versions. While reasonably durable, it requires care to avoid scratches and abrasions.
  4. Refractive Index:
    • The refractive index of synthetic tanzanite is similar to natural tanzanite, enhancing its brilliance and fire.

Origin and Production

Natural tanzanite is exclusively found in the Merelani Hills of Tanzania, near Mount Kilimanjaro. In contrast, synthetic tanzanite is produced in laboratories worldwide, including the United States, Russia, and China.

Uses and Popularity

Both natural and synthetic tanzanite are highly valued in the jewelry industry. The trillion cut, with its unique triangular shape, is particularly popular for creating striking and modern jewelry pieces such as rings, earrings, and pendants.

Synthetic tanzanite in a trillion shape is a modern and vibrant choice for jewelry, offering the same stunning color and brilliance as natural tanzanite with potentially better clarity and consistency. Its unique triangular cut makes it a standout in any jewelry collection, combining contemporary design with the captivating allure of this beautiful gemstone.
