Small Cabinet, 8.3 x 6.5 x 4.8 cm
A fine and aesthetic specimen from recent finds at Brumado, Brazil. A 3.6 cm, glassy, sea-green emerald crystal is attached to the side of two, diverging quartz crystals that are preferentially studded with gemmy magnesite rhombs. The smaller quartz crystal is water-clear and has a razor termination. It looks like cut glass. The large quartz termination was contacted against the top of the pocket.
