Thumbnail, 2.5 x 2.2 x 1.8 cm
Morro da Mina, Conselheiro Lafaiete, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This is the best thumbnail I have yet seen in the new lots, and it is composed of a cluster of a large twin in the middle with 3 intergrown untwinned crystals. The piece is pristine in front and has just a few contacts on the back but is essentially completely formed around the back as well. Complex form, juicy color, and trnaslucency make this a very interesting piece in its own right, not just a "small examnple."
