Item Description

A stunning LARGE CABINET specimen from a unique find a few years ago in Brazil. Rich, yellow lepidolite, such as this, is RARE from any locality. This is the only specimen I have seen like this, in such quality. A 9.0 cm, doubly-terminated quartz crystal rests on a larger, extended quartz shard; and the whole quartz shard is included with or coated with here and there by beautiful lepidolite, giving a gorgeous golden "glow" when backlit to the whole specimen. Ex Brent Lockhart Collection and comes with a custom-made and labeled lucite base (valued at $125), as a free bonus. valued $750-900
