- Telirio claim, Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Minas Gerais, Brazil
- Small Cabinet, 5.8 x 2.3 x 2.2 cm
Vibrant lemon yellow, transparent to translucent single crystal of Montebrasite from the famed Telirio Claim in Brazil. The pegmatites in Pakistan and Afghanistan produce some beautiful pegmatite minerals; however, they don't produce the mineral diversity of those in Brazil and have yet to produce Montebrasite crystals of any quality and color! This Montebrasite is very good and relatively large for the species at 5.8cm in length - and it's doubly terminated! The crystal is also quite remarkable for the color which is a vivid medium lemon yellow with a gemmy termination and much of the body of the crystal is gemmy as well with translucent areas. The crystal is complete and sharp on the display side while the back is contacted as is an area on the back of the top termination. Comes with custom engraved base.
