Item Description

Beautifully pearlsecent lilac, thick platy lepidolite dramatically encloses a sculptural, sharp, rectangular, thick transparent, pearlescent muscovite plate. An utterly fascinating and unusual combination from this well-known pegmatite district. A surreal, uncommon and striking combination from Minas Gerais. The embedded cleavelandite blades add contrast and pizzazz.
