Brazilianite, Albite
Thumbnail, 2.9 x 1.3 x 0.7 cm
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This is a fine toenail specimen featuring beautiful, lustrous, gemmy, yellow-green color, doubly-terminated crystals of Brazilianite with minor Albite. The quality is superb on this piece and it is very gemmy, and not at all "crazed" like many from this area. A beautiful specimen and a near "floater" specimen boot. Ex. Brian Kosnar Collection.
