Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.5 x 1.5 cm
Morro da Mina, Conselheiro Lafaiete, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil
In some ways, this is my favorite of the lot for its sleek dramatic display. This crystal leaps off of a massive rhodonite base and has a really sharp, gemmy, transparent to translucent termination. It is slightly contacted on the back, and lower edges only, but that front face is smooth and perfectly presented. It is a huge crystal face, and displays head-on with impact. Front and back are shown - no "glow" shot isneeded because it shows up this gemmy even in just moderate lighting.
