Beryl (Var: Emerald), Magnesite
Serra das Eguas, Brumado (Bom Jesus dos Meiras), Bahia, Brazil
Miniature, 4.7 x 3.3 x 3.0 cm
A gemmy and showy cluster of light sea-green emerald crystals on magnesite matrix from Brumado, Brazil. The emerald crystals are very glassy and there is distinct color-zoning within the crystals. These are a novel, light color, green-blue in fact, and the glassy luster is like nothing I have seen from here before. Small but superb "jewel-like" crystals!
