Brazilian Phenakites were long considered the world´s best, and this old locality produced during the 1940s & 1950s although this specimen seems to date back further, judging from the labels to Maucher. This attractive competition-quality miniature is actually a cluster of gemmy Phenakites, all sharp and shiny, with high luster and good form. In fact, many are intergrown in such a way that the floral pattern much resembles a sixling twin. The largest crystal is 2,2 cm across. Despite the fact of some imperfections, this is anyway a great and old time mini with fine old labels.
