Beryl (Var: Goshenite), Tourmaline
Resplendor, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.3 x 1.1 cm
A classic, water-clear, tabular goshenite beryl crystal from Resplendor, Brazil. This gem crystal has textbook hexagonal form and the accenting tourmalines are a nice accent, especially the one in the middle that comes out of both sides of the beryl. This is outstanding old-time material, dating to the 1960s or 1970s, from the Ed Swoboda Collection.
