Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 2.3 x 2.0 cm
This heliodor has superb lemon-yellow color and luster. The upper portion of the crystal is transparent and could be facetted. It is from a small pocket of remarkably fine crystals found last summer - most crystals from here are etched by natural solutions after formation and it is very rare to find a non-corroded crystal of such quality in these deposits. This crystal is complete, though shows some very minor surface etching of the flat faces. In person it is quite translucent, even transparent in portions.
