Brazilianite on Albite
Telirio claim, Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 5.3 x 3.7 x 2.3 cm

Sugarlike and sparkly white albite is the host matrix for a few, glassy and gemmy, light yellow green brazilianite crystals, to 2 cm in length. There are also two tabular light green mica crystals, to 8 mm across, on the albite. This was chosen from a single large pocket in Brazil in 2020. Other more recent pockets discovered in the past decade have not been as lustrous as this pocket.
