- Três Barras, Padre Paraíso, Minas Gerais, Brazil
- 3.2 x 2 x 2 cm - Miniature
Nearly a waterclear crystal with just a trace of tan color. The crystal is terminated and by the photos you can see the unusual nature of the crystal with a right angle knotch along the c-axis. I have no idea what caused this. Minor chipping along the edges. This is just an old, uncommon locality piece with a Ward's label.
