Jairo Mine, Resplendor, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 5.1 x 4.3 cm
This is a very large (200-gram) crystal of beautiful blue-green gem beryl - very gemmy and bright. Most of the faces are super-lustrous and glassy, with others having natural etching from pocket solutions. The crystal shows a very unusual blocky form. This is a very rare, odd style both for color and the overall form of the crystal combining both sharp window faces and 'etch effects' due to dissolution in the pocket.
