Ouro Fino Mine, Coronel Murta, Minas Gerais, Brazil
This is an excellent muscovite specimen. At its core are large crystals of a pinkish muscovite, the individual sheets of which appear transparent. These are covered with a 3 to 10 mm thick layer of fine green muscovite crystals which look a dull olive green from some directions, but a sparkly light metallic green from others. Thre is a bit of a pink tinted calcite present. A loupe reveals that some of the small green crystals of muscovite are truly beautiful and transparent.
