Major Discovery!

Becoming a sudden millionaire.

Just this week, these 2 gigantic pieces of Tanzanite were found in the Merelani Hills of Tanzania in a mine owned by the Maasai (Pictured).

They weigh an incredible 5.8 and 0.2 kilos each! That's 33 pounds, 15,000 grams or 75,000 carats!

The mine owner was paid approximately $3,300,000 which works out to be about $45 per carat!

Get digging, folks! Just kidding, while the mineral, Zoisite, is found in a few countries, the gem variety of Zoisite is Tanzanite and that is only found in Tanzania.
