This arrowhead shaped specimen of brazilianite is a greenish-yellow color, typical for the species. It is transparent, but a myriad of internal fractures makes it impossible to see more than a few millimeters into the crystal. The front crystal faces are natural and clean, and at first I thought that the rear faces were formed by cleavage or fracture, but after close examination, I believe that the faces are natural growth faces, even though they are rough.
