This fascinating inclusion in Quartz is easily the world's finest find of blue Quartz, and possibly THE finest included Quartz found in ANY color, of all time! Acicular sprays of transparent elongated Dumortierite, flowering tufts surrounding penetrating negative crystals, and grass-like beds of blue needles are some of the many formations that have been found over the years. The first discovery of the material was in 2014. Only recently in 2016 have the dark blue inclusions been found! With most of the find going directly to Asia, we have been able to secure a fantastic parcel that we offer.
Brazil is the one country that has the largest network of specimen and gem mining in the world. It is well known for many of the world's best pegmatites, producing high class Gem Crystals. Brazil has the widest variety of multi-colored Tourmaline worldwide, and is semi-regularly producing new colors every few years. The vast array of Quartz varieties from Brazil deserve a book of their own.
