Hydroxyl-Herderite is a calcium-beryllium phosphate found in pegmatites at many localities but is uncommon at any particular location.  This very fine specimen is from Barra do Salinas in the Jequitinhonha Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil.  The entire display face of this large 12.5 x 8.0 cm specimen is composed of an opaque and matt, creamy-tan surface layer which covers whiter, more translucent Hydroxyl-Herderite crystals of up to 2.1 x 0.9 cm and 1.5 x 1.4 cm, forming a jumbled array.  An extremely good example of this rare beryllium mineral.
