Padre Paraiso, Jequitinhonha valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Cabinet, 12.2 x 1.9 x 1.6 cm
A highly unusual piece, the only one of this crystal habit we saw in the pocket contents, with a dramatic tapering termination.

This crystal is complete all around, has great golden-yellow color, and is very gemmy
