Beryl (Var: Goshenite)
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 4.9 x 2.1 cm
Golconda pegmatite, Governador Valadares, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
A DRAMATIC, LARGE and glassy, tabular goshenite beryl crystal! The translucent crystal has classic hexagonal form and is essentially a basal pinacoid crystal. very UNCOMMON! A SUPER piece, contacted on only two edges, has embedded muscovite on one edge. This is a CLASSIC, OLD-TIMER, which we are told by old-timer experts is from the famous Golconda Mine. very SELDOM on the market in this quality and variety. Ex. George Elling Collection.
