This mineral species was found and described only in the last five years, yet it is a stunning addition to the beryl family. The superb, rose pink color of this cesium-rich beryl is truly incredible. And the luster and transparency and crystal size all add to the aura of this new species. This crystal is both unusually glassy and unusually gemmy, thus of superb quality.
