Description

Several big, a bit pale yellowish/greenish beryl crystals on/in quartz. Two big crystals are lying open, at least another three could be worked out. Of what I can see now, none has terminations and you can only imagine the full size of those crystals.

The longest measurable crystal is 7.8 cm long and up to 1.7 cm thick (at the side with the 'second layer' ( there was another crystal attached I presume).
