Tanco Mine (Bernic Lake Mine), Bernic Lake, Lac-du-Bonnet area, Manitoba, Canada
Large Cabinet, 16.2 x 12.5 x 10.3 cm
A HUGE, 10.0 cm, lustrous, pearl-white, Cesium-rich beryl crystal on LARGE CABINET pegmatite matrix from the Tanco Mine in Manitoba, Canada. The mine closed in 1982. The crystal is contacted on one side, but is damage-free and is very large and well-formed otherwise. OK, its ugly BUT extremely rare and significant in the world of beryl collecting, or for a Canadian collection. Choice material from the Lewadny Collection. 16.2 x 12.5 x 10.3 cm
