Beryl (Var: Morganite)
Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.9 x 3.9 cm
This is a very large crystal of gem morganite, with fine peach color. The crystal is rough, with plenty of contact, but it has a nice glassy face that serves as the display face, and the crystal has BOTH of its terminations. Through the glassy window, you note that the interior is very gemmy! This impressive crystal came from the collection of Norm Dawson, and weighs 173 grams.
