Childrenite on Albite
Miniature, 4.6 x 2.4 x 1.6 cm
Poco Danta, Corrego Piaui, Taquaral, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This is another choice miniature. Gemmy, lustrous, colorless, albite crystals, to .5 cm across are the host for a few, bladed, lustrous, translucent, orangy-brown, childrenite crystals, to 2.0 cm in length. The larger childrenite crystals have bi-pyramidal terminations. Very nice!
