Chrysoberyl with Quartz and Muscovite
Rio des Pratinhas, Arataca, Bahia, Brazil

I purchased this matrix chrysoberyl specimen from the late Luis Menezes many years ago. It was one of the best he had at the time. It is a classic twinned crystal, about 2.2 cm tall, in a matrix of quartz and muscovite. The piece measures 5.5 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm. The chrysoberyl has only a very small imperfection at the top left corner. This is remarkable as it formed in solid quartz. It also has wonderful striations which show off the twinning very well.
