Mineral Specimen #5988 Helvine (Helvite) on Albite
Navegadora Claim, Penha do Norte, Conselheiro Pena, Minas Gerais, Brazil
7.6 x 4.3 x 4.4 cm
Tetrahedral crystals of Helvine which are two toned in color with light yellow/green overlaying very dark, almost black. The crystals contrast nicely with the underlying white colored, bladed Albite. An attractive specimen for a mineral that is usually unappealing.
Flaws: Nothing Appreciable
