Wavellite with Turquoise and Pyrolusite
Miniature, 6.0 x 5.5 x 4.0 cm
Senador Mourao, Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil

A starkly contrasting and eye-popping specimen! Colorless to bone-white, botryoidal wavellite on black, globules of pyrolusite with pale blue turquoise with local vugs of orange-brown, earthy goethite. Much of the specimen consists of colorful concentric bands of most of the species! An unusual locality piece! Ex. Paulo Matioli collection.
