Phenakite on Matrix 7.43 g 28x23mm
*These are terminated crystals
These Brazilian crystals are the most affordable Phenakite crystals on the market. They come from the Carnabia Emerald Mining District.
The Crystals, like the Russian cousins, can get very big and well formed, from small to over 2.5 kilos in this years production. They have a silver / grey / white look to them, they are opaque. Many exhibit black Mica Schist that the area is famous for, and some even contain traces of Green (Dissolved Emerald). Gem Quality is very rare from this location.
