Beryl (Var: Goshenite)
Little Three Mine (Little 3), Ramona District, San Diego Co., California, USA
Thumbnail, 1.7 x 1.6 x 1.5 cm
Beryl of any sort is relatively rare from the Little Three Mine of California. This complete all-around, pristine, hexagonal thumbnail beryl has light, pastel-pink morganite interior highlights to accentuate the mainly goshenite beryl. The tiny smoky quartz is a nice accent.
