Colatina, Espirito Santo, Southeast Region, Brazil
Miniature, 4.4 x 4.2 x 2.7 cm
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.
