Here is an wonderful naturally etched crystal of Zoisite var. Tanzanite.

The specimen measures 3.6 cm x 1.97 cm x 1.67 cm and weighs 19.8 grams or 99 carats.

 

This tanzanite crystal has a lot of transparency throughout. It appears to be made up of many thin layered crystals, which makes it very interesting visually.

The top has some natural etching but part of the crystal appears to be contacted. 

The color changes from blue to purple depending on lighting and viewing angles.

(Even if this specimen might have the possibility of some cutting material within it, this crystal is being sold as a specimen and not cutting rough. So please do not ask what I think it might cut.)
