Euclase- colorless gem crystal
Conselheiro Pena, Doce Valley
3 x 1.6 x .7 (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
Pre Holiday 2017
A perfectly clear, well terminated and sharp Euclase crystal. The faces show fine striations and the top shows a dual tip termination that is unique in our experience. If this was a blue Euclase with this clarity and sizeit would be valued in the 5 figures, but as it is colorless that is clearly not the case! An excellent example that is larger than most from this area of Brazil.
A killer gem crystal! First the piece is unrepaired, and the termination of this is like a cityscape. Individual peaks are staggered in an esthetic array. Secondly the color is rich and rare, a deep indicoloite blue grading to a deep bottle green. The luster is excellent and overall the condition is outstanding, no distracting damage or chips. Sizable too, so at a quick glance this looks dark and opaque due to the thickness, but this really glows with good lighting. The photos here have minimal backlight so the crystal is not "overlit" and unrealistic. You can really make it sing with stronger light if you want! Compare if you can find somthing like this, it is reasonable for so much good gem!
