Itaguacu, Espirito Santo, Southeast Region, Brazil
Thumbnail, 2.1 x 1.9 x 1.8 cm
Some of the most classic Chyrsoberyl specimens in the world are those from Espirito Santo in the southeastern end of Brazil. These specimens exhibit some of the most recognized and celebrated "sixling" twins for Chrysoberyl extant. This thumbnail specimen shows great yellow-green color with excellent gemminess and sharp, lustrous faces. The piece is twinned, but not in the well known "sixling" form like many from this area. Ex. Kosnar Collection.
