Beryl Var. Morganite
Himalaya Mine, Mesa Grande, San Diego Co., California, USA
Miniature, 3.8 x 1.3 x 1.1 cm
Ex. Chris Korpi
This elegant etched beryl crystal is a floater, terminated at both ends and superficialy looking like a pale kunzite. This piece has a pale peach-pink hue to it when placed against a white background. A rare and unique specimen for the Himalaya where beryl is very uncommon: formerly from the collection of Tim Sherburn, who got it in 1982 while doing cleaning and prep work for mine owner Pala Intl. It was found in August of 1982. Not so ugly in person
