Toenail, 2.8 x 2.1 x 1.4 cm
Rapid Creek, Yukon, Canada
Featuring crystals to 1 cm. These specimens come from a small find hit before the show, and brought down by Rod and Helen Tyson of Tyson's Fine Minerals in Canada. They are really quite attractive for Brazilianite from this locality and to my knowledge are the best Brazlianites outside of those found in Brazil itself. They are quite a rare species from the otherwise productive phosphate localities in the Yukon.
