Chrysoberyl (Twinned)
near Okkampitiya, Sri Lanka (found 1992)
Miniature, 4.5 x 3.0 x 1.25 cm
Ex. Dr. Ed David
A very rare locality piece AND a superb complete twinned sixling crystal, by any standard. This is a remarkable alluvial crystal that, despite its origins, retains sharp form. The State Gem Corp. of Sri Lanka said at the time that the specimen at 114 cts, was the largest found in recent years. One of two such crystals in the Ed David collection.
