Beryl (Var: Emerald)
Muzo Mine, Muzo, Vasquez-Yacopi Mining District, Boyaca Department, Colombia
Thumbnail, 9.0 x 7.0 x 6.0 mm
A REALLY deeply-colored, gemmy, forest-green emerald crystal, 9 x 7 x 6 mm in size, embedded in contrasting calcite matrix. The crystal is 9 mm tall and is mostly transparent. The quality is very high because of the EXCELLENT forest-green color and clarity, as compared to many such specimens. Also, its legit - guaranteed not to be "helped" in any way (the Columbians call it "stabilizing" when they glue loose crystals into matrix!) 5.5 x 4.5 x 4 cm
