A delicate, very sharp tabular colorless beryl crystal (goshenite) on Muscovite from old finds in Brazil. This lovely goshenite is 1.4 cm across and .3 cm thick, and grows on well-defined books of Muscovite. The beryl is perfectly gemmy, and quite attractive. Its form is so sharp it looks carved. Ex.
