@corrinecortez:  They definitely look like CZ’s and micron gold sounds like gold plate. I would not buy from this place!

Could she have said moissanite by chance? Moissanite is thehighest quality “lab diamond” or so i was told, though, I knw there are different levels of quality ranging from cz to almost identical to diamonds. (Once again this is just what a jeweler once told me and not by my own personal knowledge) hope that helps! 🙂 Very pretty btw!

I’ve never heard of white tanzanite.  I Googled and it says the color is purple to blue.  Micron gold is very fine gold particles.  This site sounds shady, I would stay away.

If the tanzanite is really low quality it can have a slight purple hue and maybe the camera is not picking it up … Either way that tanzanite is essentially “worthless” because its so pale in color  those the stones company’s put into mixed parcels because no one would specifically purchase them individually because there is basically no color saturation …. But either way it seems fishy !

I have a tanzenite ring and spent a good deal of time looking at tanzenite stones in a large jewelry store and I can tell you that even the lowest “quality” stone was pale blue/purple (I say “quality” because I myself preferred a middle grade stone because the colour was absolutely gorgeous, it’s really an aside, but I feel it’s more important to choose based on what’s aesthetically pleasing to you as opposed to official “quality” grades).  There is no such thing as white tanzenite.  Very sketchy to me.  Don’t buy from a jeweler that isn’t honest with you, no one likes getting ripped off.

Tanzanite is naturally a brown color heated to a blue color. In all my research, i’ve never heard of anything close to white.

@Diamond88:  Agreed!

OP: Listen to Diamond88. If it truely is a REALLY light colored tanzanite it is REALLY worthless. What makes tanzanite valuable is the level and type of color saturation. You WANT color.

@Bride2Be929:  Moissanite is not a lab grown diamond, or a diamond simulant, it is a gem in its own right 🙂

OP, I have never heard of clear Tanzanite. Micron gold would be gold plated.

Best stay away in my opinion!
