Miniature, 4.4 x 4.2 x 2.7 cm
Colatina, Espirito Santo, Southeast Region, Brazil
Chrysoberyl from this locale usually occurs as singles, or as unaesthetic clusters on rare occasion (and usually they are opaque and with poor luster). This cluster however, is a complete-all-around piece with beautiful crystals showing luster and translucency. It sparkles and shows off in almost any display angle. Old, classic, and rare.
