Diamond in Conglomerate
Small Cabinet, 8.9 x 5.6 x 3.6 cm
Diamantina, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This specimen features a natural diamond crystal, 5 mm across, smuched into a very unusual conglomerate matrix. These matrix diamonds from Brazil are unique to my knowledge, and quite odd in aspect as they really are a conglomerate and the appearance is just unexpected as a diamond matrix. Nevertheless, here they are!
