Beryl (Var: Heliodor)
Strickland Quarry, Collins Hill, Portland, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA
Miniature, 4.5 x 1.0 x 1.0 cm
An important heliodor for this defunct old classic US location because it is a) gemmy/translucent and b) unrepaired and c) of large size for such a high quality specimen. This is not the prettiest heliodor, but it IS one of the more significant old pieces for what it is, that I have had. It is from the noted collection of Connecticut specialist Ed Boucher 4.5 x 1 x 1 cm
