Description

This is a superb specimen featuring the old style of Brazilianite. It is a combination of a few, pretty stout crystals associated with more  elongated ones. The whole cluster is showing almost pristine and multifaced crystals with a high luster and with superb terminations as well. The Brazilianite has also a nice gemminess and an intense yellow colour with a hint of green. A stunning and super elegant specimen from the old finds around the 1970s.
