Caraiba Mine, Pindobassu, Bahia, Brazil
This is a twinned crystal of alexandrite from the mines of Bahia, Brazil. There is no matrix material present on this piece. The top of the crystal shows the distinct v-shape so familiar in chrysoberyl twins. The color is quite dark, and there is no translucence visible. This specimen is undamaged, and is mounted in a small, plastic "perky" box.
