SUPERB thumbnail! A doubly terminated, extremely lustrous, gemmy, transparent to translucent, bi-colored, blue and pink beryl crystal from the recent and UNIQUE find in Pakistan. One pinacoid termination is very glassy, while the other is lightly frosted. The prism faces near the terminations have an unusual chatoyant effect. Most of this beautiful crystal is water-clear. The bit of cleavelandite adds character. Contacting on the back is totally out of sight. It is 12 grams. MUCH BETTER In PERSON, as the high luster and chatoyancy made photography very difficult. This is definitely one of the very BEST, that we obtained in a small lot. 2.3 x 2.3 x 1.9 cm
