Gorgeous, single crystal of Brazilianite from the world-famous pegmatite district in Minas Gerais. Highly sought-after by collectors, this particular crystal has everything you could want: classic yellow color, superb and glassy luster, and it is gemmy through and through. Internal crazing lights up the crystal with reflections, making it particularly tricky to photograph. Even with a little contacting in the back, safe to say this is an outstanding Brazilianite, and it is much better in person.
