Carnaiba, Bahia, Brazil
Most of this hand specimen is emerald, although it does have a base of a mica schist (which itself contains additional tiny emerald crystals). The emerald is fairly aesthetic, although it is opaque and a relatively low quality. It is a cluster of long emerald crystals which are slightly curved. There are natural terminations, and the largest crystal in the cluster measures over 10mm in diameter and 55mm in length.
