Description

Red Beryl comes from only this one locality worldwide. The claim is non productive since decades, material becomes very rare. Crystals on matrix in this dimension are outstandig (15 mm tall and 8 mm in diameter). The Crystal is set exposed at the top of the piece, it shows best colour, sharp termination and very glossy faces. The contrast to matrix is wonderful. A small natural crack in the middle of the crystal, but it is stabile. No significant damages to report.
