Granite pegmatite. Aimorés pegmatite district, Eastern Brazilian pegmatite province.
NOTE: The only brazilian locality for Matioliite so far is the Gentil Claim. References has been made to "burangaite" (possible matioliite) coming from the from the Córrego Pomarolli area (Atencio et al (2006), but this is most likely an error. The name Córrego Pomarolli is also probably a misnomer. See messageboard : http://www.mindat.org/mesg-7-178453.html
