- Brazilianite on Albite
- Telirio claim, Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Minas Gerais, Brazil
- Miniature, 4.7 x 3.7 x 2.8 cm
Two glassy and gemmy, light yellow green brazilianite, to 4.2 cm in length are wreathed at their base by lustrous, white albite. The larger crystal is also doubly terminated. An extremely nice, showy specimen! This masses 25.9 grams. Finds from this location have trickled out in spurts since the 1990s and every now and then we are blessed with a very few pockets with the qualities we want all together - super luster, sharp crystals, and incredible contrast to white albite matrix.
