Elbaite (fine intergrown crystals)
Golconda Pegmatite district, Governador Valadares, Doce Valley
4.8 x 1.1 CM (miniature)
A really clean, simple, elegant and eye catching miniature gem crystal! From the Larry White collection, this is a little more gemmy than the photos show. There is one repair on this that is not easily seen. Older material unlike anything found recently, this has bright luster and super esthetics.
A fine zoned green gem crystal with a remarkable and rare termination. This looks like a reversed scepter as the inner termination rises above the base prism. Very sharp and clean, there are some very tiny chips on a few edges but not distracting at all. Pretty much all gem with green color ranging from yellowish to a deeper bottle green color.
Deep gemmy green crystal with very unusual termination much like a Dunton mine, Maine but still distinctly different. The crystal is a flattened prism and the display side is relatively clean of damage (micro nicks of no real significance) the back and base have contacts and removal damage but it still displays well. It is a good gem crystal with a different look than any I have seen from Golconda.
