Large, complete single Brazilianite crystal. This is a specimen I've owned for about 25 years, purchased long ago from dealer Steve Perry. Steve used to make regular trips to Brazil and was there when this mine was actively producing Brazilianite. This was the biggest, best crystal he found in his trips. There is very minor edge chatter but it's essentially undamaged with good luster, areas of transparency, and the yellow/green color these are known for. Comes with a custom Lucite base.
