A classic rich greenish-yellow color, gem quality, lustrous, pristine crystal of Heliodor Beryl from the famous discovery in the Ukraine in the 1980s. This locality is world renowned for these highly sought after and admired Heliodor specimens. The classic color, etching, and unique appearance make them a staple of any gem crystal collection. These specimens are rarely seen on the market today, and a stout crystal such as this with such excellent gemminess is certainly desirable. Ex. Richard Kosnar Collection.
