Hydroxylherderite and Lepidolite - $24
Minas Gerais, Brazil
Thumbnail - 2.9 x 2.3 x 1.7 cm
Specimen status: Available     Send an email with specimen number to order

A translucent, colorless to grey hydroxylherderite with triangular termination and decorated with some 'lepidolite' at the base. Luster is good. Some scattered chipping is noted under magnification. Difficult to pin down a more precise locality (Mindat lists 21 hydroxylherderite localities in Minas Gerais), but I would guess one of the phosphate-rich/diverse LinĂ³polis localities). Not a competition-worthy thumbnail, but good for the species.
