Miniature, 5.5 x 2.7 x 1.6 cm
Morro da Mina, Conselheiro Lafaiete, Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil
A large, robust, fat crystal with incredible luster to its front faces, and translucent to transparent especially in its top half (not shown well in the photo, sorry). The piece is large and colorful, and is relatively lower-priced than others because of damage, unseen form this angle, to the rear-left of the termination and a cleave on the left hand side facing away. Still, its a piece that dominates a case visually and looks like a far more expensive specimen, I would say. The color here is so deep, its hard to show the gemminess in the top half in our closeup.
