When Rob Lavinsky first saw this crystal with intense yellow citrine-like color, he "thought it was a particularly intense orthoclase from Madagascar." He recalls: "I next guessed a bizarre twinned dolomite from Brumado. I only drifted to guessing montebrasite/amblygonite on try #3." Montebrasite (Twinned), Telirio claim, Linopolis, Divino das Laranjeiras, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil. 6.0 x 5.0 x 4.5 cm. © Rob Lavinsky, www.iRocks.com. Used with permission.
