Beryl (Var: Heliodor)
Fianarantsoa Province, Madagascar
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 0.6 x 0.4 cm
A pure gem crystal, nearly flawless, of heliodor from Madagascar. It is elegantly slender, with sharp glassy faces. This fine crystal is actually technically doubly-terminated, with one natural termination and the other apparently broken off naturally and then healed while still in the pocket. This superb crystal weighs 5 grams. Incredible for the locality!
