- Miniature, 4.7 x 4.2 x 3.8 cm
- Paprok, Nuristan, Afghanistan
Perched nicely on matrix is a tabular, lustrous and translucent, snow white beryllonite crystal measuring 4.7 cm across. When viewed from the short axis ,the fibrous and satiny nature of the crystal is readily apparent. What makes it really superb and unusual, to me, is the nice flat and lustrous face that can present to the viewer - highly unusual for the species! This is complete all around and is a superb example of a fine beryllonite, which are usually much more expensive in this condition and in any aesthetic quality.
