Item Description

A handful of sharp, lustrous, very well-formed twins of Titanite with a brilliant yellow-green color flare off the underlying matrix to create a showy and eye-catching display specimen from Capelinha. I don't see any actual damage to the Titanite crystals, and they look great up close. The largest twin measures 2.2 cm long. There is a section of some of the crystals that are completely WATER-CLEAR and would actually yield a nice little gemstone. It's hard to find such attractive gemmy green twins of Titanite on matrix from any locality in the world, including Capelinha. A great overall specimen of this classic material from this metamorphic deposit in Brazil. Valued at $900. From the worldwide thumbnail / miniature collection of Irv Brown.
