Brazilianite on Muscovite with Clevelandite
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.1 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
A fine, undamaged and esthetic specimen featuring a 4.2 CM gem crystal of glasslike yellow-green Brazilianite. Aside from simply enjoying a beautiful mineral, this is a good time for collectors to obtain a fine Brazilianite. Before the recent finds at Linopolis, these were very rare, expensive and highly sought after. They will certainly become rare again, and above average specimens will appreciate well.
