Beryl (Var: Morganite)
Alto Ligonha District, Zambezia Province, Mozambique
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 5.5 x 3.8 cm
A big, gemmy morganite crystal, 5 cm and complete across the display face, showing lustrous faces. The backside of the morganite and the matrix it sits atop is a natural flat contact face where the crystal was removed from the matrix it was growing against, so even though it is a sort of half-dome in shape, it IS complete. This is a FINE and large morganite for the locality, quite gemmy through the interior. 5.8 x 5.2 x 4.8 x
