Brazilianite
stock #AC_349
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.8 x 5.3 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $440
Dec 2018

A sculptural tower of Brazilianite crystals most of which are doubly terminated. An early 1970 vintage specimen with no matrix at all just several generations of Brazilianite in several habits nicely composed as a zigzag arrangement. In excellent condition, all the main crystals are undamaged, with 20X magnification, only a tiny chips are found in spots that are not seen on display, perfect by naked eye. The smaller crystals are transparent, gemmy and very lustrous, the larger ones have inclusions that are seen just inside the faces and give a more matte look but still have glassy faces outside. Not typical, the esthetics are fine and far better in person.
Brazilianite with Muscovite
stock #7.1-023
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.1 x 3 x 2.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $525
Fall 2015

Another Brazillian classic. This features a fine sharp, glassy and partly gemmy Brazilianite that is nicely paired with Muscovite showing twin crystal forms. In great condition, the specimen displays very well from several sides. From the major pockets found in 2008, this quality is not being found now. There have been two major finds of fine Brazilianite in the past 70 years, both were different in habit, it may be a long while before the next one if ever. A good value for an esthetic and choice specimen.
Brazilianite (older USA specimen)
stock #A10-1059
GE Smith Mine (Chandler's Mills) Newport, Sullivan County
New Hampshire, United States
5.8 x 3.9 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $80
Spring 2014

Brazilianite crystals of any size from outside Brazil are rare. This New Hampshire USA specimen has a main crystal prism 1.3 CM across and many smaller in a cluster that is about 3.2 CM across. For a non Brazilian piece this is darned good speciemn of this unusual phosphate. Collected in the late 60's these are not seen very often anymore.
Brazilianite (on albite)
stock #12.1-124
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.4 x 4.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $400


A clean, bright, sharp and colorful specimen of clustered gemmy Brazilianites on a tiny shard of Albite matrix. The crystals reach 3.5 CM and are in fine condition. From 2009 finds in Linopolis, this is far above average and has a great esthetic, but at an affordable price.
Brazilianite on Muscovite with Clevelandite
stock #12.1-009
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
5.1 x 3.2 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $375


A fine, undamaged and esthetic specimen featuring a 4.2 CM gem crystal of glasslike yellow-green Brazilianite. Aside from simply enjoying a beautiful mineral, this is a good time for collectors to obtain a fine Brazilianite. Before the recent finds at Linopolis, these were very rare, expensive and highly sought after. They will certainly become rare again, and above average specimens will appreciate well.
Brazilianite
stock #AC-349
Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
8 x 5.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $275


A cluster of pure Brazilianite in stacked crystals reaching 4.6 cm. This is an older piece from the mid 1960s when the early materials from Linopolis were first available. The display face of this piece is pristine, undamaged and very sculptural, it is contacted on the backside which is not visible on display. The crystals are glassy and translucent but have many cloudy inclusions so are not gemmy except on thin edges. Since these are not the top dollar gem crystals this is a very affordable and attractive piece!
Brazilianite
stock #6.4-101
Telirio Mine, Linopolis
Minas Gerais, Brazil
8.5x7 CM. Xls to 2CM (cabinet)
price: $850


A fine spray of sharp, lustrous and brilliant yellow-green Brazilianites wrap the matrix in an esthetic arrangement. Outstanding gemmy quality, all the main crystals are perfect, however there is some damage at the edges to small crystals that is not distracting. A very fine, esthetic matrix piece of what is perhaps the best quality find of this mineral in decades.
