Barra das Salinas, Coronel Murta, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 6.5 x 3.9 cm

Stark, lustrous white albite forms the matrix for two, lustrous, translucent, lilac-colored crystals of hydroxyl-herderite, to 3.3 cm in length. The herderite crystals are perched, aesthetically, atop the canyons of albite. The contrast in colors is particularly nice! The herderites are complete save for a small contact in back. A little crackly in the photos, more so than in person, but definitely not repaired. This isa very impressive piece!
