A very gemmy and transparent crystal point of yellow-green brazilianite from the original find at the Corrego Frio Mine in the 1940s. These were the best brazilianites ever found and this piece has several hundred dollars of cutting rough in it. The back of the crystal is cleaved and is included, which gives it the cloudy appearence accentuated in the pictures more so than in person. It is, overall, a bright gem of a crystal again with intrinsic cutting value as well as the fact that the first ones have remianed the best, even after 60 years, for color and luster! 2.2 x 1.5 x 1.3 cm
