Beryl (Var: Red Beryl)
Thumbnail, 1.4 x 0.5 x 0.3 cm
Violet claims, Wah Wah Mts, Beaver Co., Utah, USA

A beautiful, cranberry-red, thumbnail red beryl crystal cluster from the Violet Claims in the Wah Wah Mountains of Utah. The "smokestack" crystal is fine and the crystals have excellent gemminess and textbook, hexagonal form. The bit of attached matrix is a nice accent. Ex. Ed Braiman Collection. Weighs 1.84 carats.
