Childrenite- Eosphorite (gemmy with unusual color)
Mendez Pimentel
Minas Gerais, Brazil
2.6 x 1.8 x .9 CM (thumbnail)
price: $390
Spring 2020

A super single crystal thumbnail of red-orange Childrenite ex John Buckley Collection. This is translucent to transparent and has internal zoning. From a find many years ago at Mendes Pimental, there were very few found with this unusual color, it is possibly closer to the Eosphorite end of the series though the original testing called this Childrenite, we have not re analyzed this. Complete and well terminated, one part of the termination hosts a zone of tiny doubly terminated Quartz crystals which adds a nice contrast. No matter the specie this is a choice colorful example of both ends of the series.
