Item Description

These beautiful brightly colored Brucites are some of the most exciting new finds from any world locality in recent years. This is a mineral species that is not often found in lively / colorful display specimens like this. The combination of the fine quality, gemmy crystals with the very rare electric yellow color has made them quite popular among collectors. This small cabinet display specimen features attractive, lustrous, rounded, translucent, yellow to almost white colored crystals groups with no matrix. As I mentioned, this is a rare color for Brucite, and with the good internal gemminess / translucency when backlit, it's a wonderful example of the material. Originally, these were thought to be from Kharan, but we had a source tell us they're actually from Killa Saifullah District, so it's possible that the Brucites were brought to market in Kharan and errantly thought to be from there. Nonetheless, these are very attractive and worthwhile to add to your collection since there seems to be a limited amount on the market and typically these kind of discoveries don't produce a lot of material, so get them while you can. Priced at $1,000 in the inventory.
