Beryl (Var: Morganite), Beryl (Var: Goshenite), Feldspar Group
Golconda pegmatite, Governador Valadares, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 5.5 x 5.2 cm
A SUPERB, CLASSIC and OLD-TIME combination specimen from the famous Golconda Mine of two, gemmy and lustrous, elongated, sharp beryl crystals very attractively set on the sides of a sharp, lightly etched, tan feldspar crystal. The large, 4.7 cm crystal is a morganite, while the smaller beryl is a colorless, goshenite beryl. Both beryl crystals are pristine and you would be hard-pressed to find a more well-assembled specimen from this famous mine. Ex. Ed Ruggiero Collection, who purchased this aesthetic piece at the Tucson Show in 1975 from the Sklar's (Oceanside Gems), a well known importer of the time in NYC. This is an exceptionally aesthetic specimen!
