Wow! That's all we could say the first time we saw this incredible Emerald specimen from Brazil! Whenever you see Brazilian emerald like this it is either a broken single crystal, or it's a conglomeration embedded deep in matrix. This one, however, is the only one we've ever seen where a preparer when though the trouble of removing all of that matrix to reveal the entire crystal cluster in its full glory, and it is really outstanding.
There are 9 major emerald crystals along with a few minor ones, and they are all either connected to each other or connected to the black mica matrix on the bottom. The emerald crystals are opaque green with black veins - typical Brazilian emerald, and the condition is quite good, but there are a few repairs. Luckily, the repairs were expertly done, so it's difficult to spot where they are, and they certainly don't affect the appearance of the piece whatsoever. If you're looking for a unique Emerald mineral specimen then this is it!
The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
