Thumbnail, 2.4 x 1.7 x 1.5 cm
Itaguacu, Espirito Santo, Brazil
Ex. Herb Obodda

Some of the most classic Chrysoberyl specimens in the world are those from Espirito Santo in the southeastern end of Brazil. This thumbnail has good yellow-green color, excellent luster, and good translucence to gemminess. The most recognized and celebrated habit for Chrysoberyl - the "sixling" twin, has begun to develop here. This deposit only produced from 1939-1941, so this 10 g crystal is a rare, and highly sought-after, thumbnail specimen of display quality.
