SOLD Lepidolite with Muscovite core
Aracuai, Jequitinhonha Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
9 x 5.7 x .4 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
new year 2021

An oddity, this is an attractive well-formed Mica crystal with fine zoning and a sharp transparent window in the core. The outer zone of Lepidolite is a rose purple and shows thin color bands when backlit. This piece is from a small lot that arrived in 2017 and I have not seen anything like this since.
