Brazilianite, Albite
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 7.4 x 5.4 cm
Wrapping around two faces of this euhedral crystal of albite is a rich covering of extremely gemmy crystals of brazilianite - with glassy luster and fabulous bright lemony-green color. The crystals are not huge (to about 1.5 cm), but the quality is fantastic. There are DOZENS of fine crystals here, and what an unusual and pretty setting for them (the large, euhedral albite) .
