Brazilianite with Albite
Telirio Mine, Linopolis, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Gemmy, lustrous brazilianite with perfect termination and crystal faces at the front and on both sides of the specimen. Significant contact area at the back of the crystal but this does not detract when viewed from the front or sides. A small mass of albite is attached at the base and there is a small doubly-terminated brazilianite crystal perched on one side. Very showy.
