TH97AL5: Group of Elbaite crystals (indicolite variety) forming parallel growths with very sharply pointed polycrystalline pyramidal terminations. The crystals are transparent, with great luster, mostly blue but with pink tones in the lower part. This is one of the few large specimens saved for collectors from the lucky finds of the 1980s, most of which went to the gem trade for faceting, which yielded crystals with a quality and density of color, and luster, far superior to previous finds. A unique specimen which demonstrates how very unpredictable Nature can be.
Santa Rosa Mine, Itambacuri, Vale do Rio Doce, Minas Gerais  Brazil (±1980)

Specimen size: 15 × 12.5 × 8 cm = 5.91” × 4.92” × 3.15”
