Emerald

Ex Dr F Krantz (Bonn, Germany)
Classic Locality

Description Tabs

Description
Locality: 
Boyacá Department, Colombia
Size Range: 
Small cabinet (7-10 cm)
Size: 
9.5 × 4 × 2.8 cm
Description

Nice and colorful emerald specimen with several nice green beryl crystals (no distinct terminations) with limonite (seems to be altered pyrite) on clay-like matrix with some carbonate content.

The locale that was given by Krantz is only Colombia, the matrix points toward Chivor as the paragenesis there fits better than in the Muzo district.

Nevertheless a nice classic, but no old label unfortunately
