# BER-30, $50.00 Sold!
Dims: 3.48x2.83x1.64in (8.84x7.18x4.15cm) .... Wt: 6.0oz (171g) .... Loc: Sichuan, China
This very pretty specimen consists of a host rock which is crystalline albite, covered with hundreds of thin muscovite blades, and sporting a dozen or so beryl crystals (I'd call them aquamarine if they had more color - but they are quite pale, except for a few broken crystals viewed edgewise). This is a very nice multi-mineral specimen.
# BER-28, $40.00 Sold!
Dims: 4.26x2.32x1.65" (10.83x5.90x4.19cm) .... Wt: 10.32oz (292g) .... Loc: Harding District, Taos County, New Mexico, USA
A large beryl crystal lies on a host rock of quartz and polylitionite. The beryl crystal nearly spans the length of the specimen, and is over 3cm in width. It has a slightly distorted hexagonal cross section, is white, translucent, and has a slightly dulled but otherwise vitreous luster. There are other minerals (light brown and black) on the surface, giving the crystal a dirty appearance in places.
# BER-27, $130.00 Sold!
Dims: 2.93x2.04x1.15" (7.45x5.19x2.91cm) .... Wt: 2.94oz (83.1g) .... Loc: Goshent, Pakistan
This is a nice specimen of beryl - it shows several clusters of long prismatic crystals, many doubly terminated, as bundles on a matrix that looks like albite. The tips of the crystals are clear and nearly colorless, so they are properly "goshenite", although the bases are milky white. The face of the specimen is covered with a large transparent crystal (about 4mm thick and without natural edges), that looks similar to the beryl, but I believe that it is a different (unidentified) mineral.
# BER-26, $60.00 Sold!
Dims: 4.5x2.5x0.9" (11.4x6.5x2.3 cm) .... Wt: 6.1 oz. (173 g) .... Loc: Zhaoton, Sichuan Provence, China
This hand specimen of beryl is a bit too clear and colorless to be called aquamarine, although it shares the crystal shape of some very nice Chinese aquamarine that I have seen. There are perhaps two dozen crystals, some of which are intergrown, on the surface of the quartzite base. There are also numerous needls of schorl tourmaline, including many schorl needles growing through the beryl. Much of the appeal of this specimen is due to the radiating tourmaline inclusions in the otherwise extremely transparent beryl crystals, which are undamaged.
