Beryl (Var: Goshenite), Muscovite
Green Cloud Mine, Cooper Canyon District, Riverside Co., California, USA
Miniature, 4.9 x 1.5 x 1.4 cm
A SHOWY and EXCELLENT combination specimen from the much less well-known Green Cloud Mine of San Diego County! This aesthetic piece was JUST FOUND and consists of two, parallel-growth, gemmy and lustrous, goshenite (colorless) beryl partially wrapped in pearlescent muscovite books. This complete all-around beauty is very nearly pristine. According to the Jon Page label, he personally collected this fine specimen on April 21, 2008.
