Large top-drawer matrix specimens of Brazilian anatase are uncommon, with the majority being singles or groups of
crystals. This superfine steel-blue crystal to 2.3 cm long in characteristic bipyramidal form sits perched at the edge
of matrix. They were practically unheard-of until one of Ed Swoboda’s legendary mining ventures unearthed some
of the world’s nicest and most colorful specimens ever found. This group of five is also greatly enhanced by
sharply terminated faces of classy smoky quartz.
