Beryl (Var: Morganite), Elbaite
Barra de Salinas district, Barra de Salinas, Coronel Murta, Jequitinhonha valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.2 x 2.3 cm
Two gemmy, gorgeous pink morganite crystals from the Barra de Salinas pegmatites of Brazil. The beautiful, tabular crystals have very complex termination faces and the large crystal is very nicely accented with green tourmalines. Ex. Michael Jactat Collection, a French dealer and collector, who was active in Brazil and collected fine miniatures for his own collection. These are not common at all, from Barra de Salinas.
