The mineral MUSCOVITE (more commonly known as MICA) is usually found in granite pegmatites as hexagonal books made up of thin, layered sheets. This is an exemplary specimen of a very uncommon habit of mica - it has crystallized as hundreds of 5-pointed stars! It comes from the gem pegmatite in the Jenipapo District, Itinga, Minas Gerais, Brazil. I acquired this fine specimen at the Tucson Mineral Show this year when I found Brazilian wholesale dealer who had some top quality specimens of this surprising form of muscovite.
