Elbaite -multi color zoned
stock #17.1-412
Santa Rosa
Minas Gerais, Brazil
3 x 1.5 x 1.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $420


A glassy, clean and many colored crystal of Elbaite from an old find (1970 vintage) at Santa Rosa. I count four or five colors at least with some gentle gradations. The termination is the flat basal type and has a hint of blue in some lighting but not so strong as a classic blue cap. In excellent condition though there are some tiny rough spots that are sub millimeter in size and not easy to see. A very nice gem crystal with a choice color pallet zoning from this get locale.
