Cabinet, 14.9 x 13.9 x 8.8 cm
Albany, Oxford Co., Maine, USA
This specimen is from a well-known old beryl locality in Maine, but you do not see many of the crystals around anymore. Here you have a lustrous, translucent crystal of 4.5 cm, with sea-foam green color, embedded but nicely exposed on a large matrix of quartz. One of the two terminations was left intact. This area produced some gigantic beryl crystals back in the day (though not of this quality and color; ugly, but big - one of them, found in the 1920s, was 18 feet in length) .
