Description:This is an attractive miniature specimen featuring a few sharp, lustrous, well-formed, gemmy, yellow green color, crystals of Brazilianite measuring up to 2.5 cm on bladed Albite matrix. The top part of one of the larger crystals actually has interrupted growth from the Albite, as it's actually growing through the center of the Brazilianite crystal. The quality is good on this piece and it is pretty gemmy and not at all "crazed" like many from this area. From the collection of Rolando Gioia (a contributor to new definitive book on Brazilian minerals: "Minerais e Pedras Preciosas do Brasil").
