Brazilianite on Albite
Telirio claim, Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 3.8 x 2.9 x 2.8 cm

Perched aesthetically on a bit of white, sugary albite are two light yellow green brazilianite crystals, to 3.2 cm in length, which have formed a perfect "Y". Both of these crystals appear to be doubly terminated, making it a choice miniature specimen. This piece masses 17.2 grams. Highly lustrous and contrasting, this has the qualities of a great miniature specimen.
