Here we have a large and top gemmy doubly terminated green Elbaite from Virgem da Lapa of Minas Gerais Brazil. Colour and habit are so typical for the locale and the crystal features a beautiful vertical striation. Only minor edge wear at the prism faces but distinct imperfections on the termiantions. But with perfect terminations, we would be talking about a five-digit value. For showing clarity and colour the pictures were made with minor backlit.
