Item Description

This matrix of albite hosts four doubly-terminated crystals, all pristine and complete, to 7 cm tip to tip. All crystals have razor sharp, beveled terminations that are as good as you can ask for this 'modern style' of brazilianite found at Telirio claim in the early 2000s. The display face is pristine and complete. Brazilianite with crystals in this size is so hard to get now, and this is an imposing, hefty, colorful, and very balanced specimen. It was purchased when they came out by Bob Reynolds, and later sold to Jingnan Zhang, from whose collection it now comes out. Valued $3500-4500 for size and just do not get such robust crystals, normally.
