Toenail, 3.1 x 2.8 x 1.3 cm
Corrego Frio mine, Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A large, sharp, mostly GEMMY brazilianite crystal with bright yellow-green color and glassy faces. The right shot hsows light backed off and angled to reflect and highlight how glassy the surface really is. Contact (where removed from matrix) is limited to the lower part of one end and the bottom. From the best and most important early find, of the 1940s era, this is a true classic and though more brazilianites have been found since, they have been of different habit and color hues. 3.1 x 2.8 x 1.3 cm
