While Brazil's Pederneira mine is much better known as the source for some of the world's finest elbaite tourmaline crystals, it has also produced world-class examples of the lithium mica lepidolite. This is a particularly fine lepidolite specimen, with lustrous, bright violet-pink crystals in stacked, elongated crystals which branch out in very aesthetic fan-like clusters. A superb example of an often-overlooked species from an important locale. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
