Exceptional specimen of elbaite from the classic Brazilian mine of Pederneira, which shows us a predominantly prismatic crystal with striated faces, with excellent transparency, pink tones in the lower part, colorless and with an intense cherry-colored top. The crystal is included in quartz crystals. It is accompanied by other pink crystals of elbaite along with lepidolite and clevelandite. The size is exceptional and the gem quality of the main crystal more than remarkable. It belongs from the Enrique Llorens. The main crystal is: 6,2 x 0,8 x 0,7 cm. 2,44 x 0,32 x 0,28 inc.
