This is a really cool piece. The Muscovite formed recovering a Spodumene (Kunzite) crystal. As the Muscovite was being formed, the Spodumene was being dissolved. Leaving a Muscovite "shell".  How do we know that there was indeed a Spodumene in there? We can estimate that, because of the shape, because the location is common for Spodumene, and also because there were pieces that were only parcially altered.

This piece has very sharp greenish yellow Muscovite crystals, very sparkly and well formed. From Minas Gerais, in Brazil.   Measures: 4.4 x 2.8 x 1.5 cm
