Description

Rich cluster of yellow-green, speer-shaped brazilianite crystals. Great lustre all over the specimen and quite good transparency for most tips of the crystals. I dare define this a floater due to the lack of contact points.

Provided sporadic peripheral bruising, the specimen is in excellent conditions.
