Citrine Crystals on Cleavelandite & Microcline # BRAZ01

Please click on the photos below to enlarge

You are looking at one awesome cabinet specimen here exhibiting some stellar characteristics: Two impressively large, smoky/orange naturally colored, Citrine crystals with razor sharp features.

The glassy transparency allows viewing right through several parts of the shorter crystal, but really both display amazing luster even within its translucent parts. White Clevelandite, with Microcline skirting the base of the specimen is literally "icing on the cake"...adding the perfect touch for a very natural display and presence.

Adding to its aesthetics, you can see in some of the photographs that the backside of the larger crystal literally has dozens of lighter colored "crystal points". These undoubtedly commenced growing after these two larger crystals were well established in their formation. Perfect terminations throughout.

Just an amazing sculpture from a world famous locale/mine. If you search around, you will not find many like this out there. This fine cabinet specimen will truly be coveted as it displays in your collection!

Brazilianite with Albite # TUC0804

WOW! This is one very large perfect, double terminated crystal. I have seen similar specimens on another web site, and at mineral shows sell for three times the price that I have listed here. Guess I must have gotten a great deal on the lot! As always, I will pass this savings on to my customers.

My sentiments on this piece are that beauty pictured here speaks for itself! Superb aesthetics, excellent color, luster, perfect terminations, and superb quality throughout. A winning combination of Brazilianite and Albite.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
