Comment: This is a recent find from Brazil. It's a colorless Quartz cabochon with a radial cluster of orange Pyrophyllite inside. The back of the cabochon was left as a natural face since usually, this inclusion is very close to the surface. It is very beautiful and reminds me of a little flower. It weighs 10.80 carats. From Brazil.

Minerals: Pyrophyllite (Al2Si4O10(OH)2) Quartz (SiO2)
