Cherry Tanzurine - What is SO SPECIAL about this stone ?

Posted by Jonathan Bartky on

CHERRY TANZURINE

  Everyone has heard of Tanzanite! RIght ? Well, at one time, no one did, because it was a new find in Tanzania. It was a simple stone called zoisite. But, someone saw the potential for it to be a beautiful gemstone and started to cut and polish it and market it and the rest is history. Well, I discovered a relatively new stone in Tanzania that a friend showed me a sample of. Even in Tanzania, in the heart of the gem district, no one knew what this stone was ! It was found on Massai tribal land deep in the bush in Northern Tanzania. I love quartz, but, I never had seen a 100 % natural and Untreated Cherry Quartz. It was not known to exist. But, here it is ! A Natural and Untreated Cherry Quartz that has beautiful color and Sparkle too !!! It cuts and polishes beautifully and has "Aventurescence."

Wikipedia - "In gemology, aventurescence {sometimes called aventurization} is an optical reflectance effect seen in certain gems. The effect amounts to a metallic glitter, arising from minute, preferentially oriented mineral platelets within the material."

    Major Magazines in the Gem and Mineral industry are just starting to understand and recognize the importance of this new find ! ROCK & MINERALS MAGAZINE { Current Edition}, has a feature article on TANZURINE FROM TANZANIA. You will see my picture in the article since I was interviewed and recognized as the individual to export this stone our of Africa into the United States and market it Worldwide. Several other MAGAZINES have interviewed me and will be coming out with articles describing the uniqueness of this gemstone.

  I am selling this stone both rough and cut and polished on my website, wholesale to the trade and at Major Trade shows. I also recently opened up a NEW Showroom/ Warehouse in the NYC Metro Area. 

I highly recommend that anyone interested purchase this stone now while the price is still reasonable. With the attention it is getting demand will exceed supply, so now is an excellent time to invest in a commodity that will only go up in value.

Happy Rockhounding ! - Jonathan

You Never Know What to Expect ! -Letter from Jonathan Bartky

Posted by Jonathan Bartky on

AFRICA !!! A new frontier. Really, When I was a kid, all my reports in school would be on Africa. African animals, cultures, etc. So, it is no surprise that being in the Rock and Mineral Business, that I would gravitate to stones from the African Continent. When I worked as a Head Nurse at a state Psychiatric hospital, most of the staff that worked at the hospital were from Africa. I would typically show up at special occasions wearing the local garb from that country and they always appreciated a "Mzungu" embracing their cultures. I even learned a little Yoruba, "Kilo n sele " ! (What's Happening). Many times I have been invited by my African friends to visit their country of origin. Nigeria, Cameroon, Ghana, etc. But, wouldn't you know, I end of befriending folks from East Africa. Next thing you know, KARIBU, WELCOME to Tanzania. Hakuna Mattata, Simba, Rafiki. All East African. Yes, Swahili, the language of East Africa. So, I am very fortunate to be able to offer a wide variety of stones from that region of the world.                                      Sincerely,                                                                                                          Jonathan Bartky
