Beryl (Var: Emerald)
Pinaje Mine, Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Miniature, 3.2 x 1.0 x 0.7 cm
This is a vibrant green, lustrous crystal of a rich green color - quite uncommon from Brazil. In person, it has more apparent luster. The termination is unusual in that it is prismatic (if shallowly so) instead of flat as usual for an emerald.
