Elbaite, Albite (Var: Cleavelandite)
Pederneira claim, Sao Jose da Safira, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 6.6 x 1.8 cm
A beautiful specimen from recent finds at the Pederneira Mine. Pearlescent florets of snow-white cleavelandite blades aesthetically surround a lustrous, cranberry and green tourmaline. The very sculptural quality and contrast of the cleavelandite against the tourmaline make for an excellent Pederneira combination specimen.
