Item Description

The famous Xenotime-(Y) crystals from Novo Horizonte are some of the finest examples of the species ever found, especially because the crystals are so large, but still retain excellent form, sharpness and luster. This piece is a fine example of these beautiful classic crystals as it is a complete, well-formed, tetragonal prism with high luster and an attractive rich golden-bronze hue. If you look closely, you will see a nearly metallic-esque reflectiveness just below the surface when the crystal is rotated in the light. No damage, save the base where it was removed from the pocket wall. A super thumbnail for any fan of pegmatite minerals or rare-earth species.
