Safira pegmatite district, Eastern Brazilian pegmatite province.
Pegmatites in this area produce excellent gem-quality green tourmaline.

The Sao Jose do Safira mine also produces quartz crystals that are somewhat distinctive and when properly irradiated produce what in the gem industry is known as "green gold" and "lemon gold" quartz. The Brazilian company EMBRESA (Empresa Brasileira de Radiacao in Sao Paulo does most of the irradiation.

'Planerite-Turquoise Series'
Description: Originally reported to be coeruleolactite. All purported coeruleolactite examined by the authors of the 1998 report (Foord, E.E. & Taggart, J.E.) were largely Planerite, or Occasionally turquoise. Published analysis indicates that the vacany in the 'A' site is between 0.51-0.54 atom fraction, the balance in Cu-0.40 and Zn-0.06 to 0.09. It is suggested by this analysis that the turquoise structure likely cannot accomodate Ca in the 'A' site.
