Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Boise Co., Idaho, USA
Miniature, 3.3 x 3.1 x 2.4 cm
Granted, it is no competition for an aqua from Minas Gerais, but these old Idaho specimens are infinitely harder to obtain! You just do not see them around on the market. The opaque or slightly translucent crystal measure up to about 2.5 cm and is on matrix (which is rare). Ex. Geary Murdock Collection 3.3 x 3.1 x 2.4 cm
