Minas Gerais, Brazil

This specimen probably started as a single spodumene crystal which through natural etching and fragmentation became many smaller pieces, now cemented together with a beige mica (probably muscovite). An interesting snapshot in the life of a spodumene crystal, one of those minerals highly prone to natural etching. A few of the smallest spodumene fragments on the very ends have broken edges, but overall, nothing I would call noticeable or detracting damage.
