Description:Red Beryl is certainly among the most recognizable, desirable and rarest of gems / minerals from the Western United States. This Beryl variety is one of the great combinations of rarity and beauty in both worlds. The classic "gooseberry" color crystals have attracted collectors for years, and are now in short supply and high demand. Here we have a 2 piece set features translucent/gemmy, sharp, lustrous, hexagonal prismatic crystals with a tiny bit of attached Rhyolite matrix. One of the crystals is nearly 100% GEM quality, while the other is more translucent. As I said, it is becoming very difficult to obtain any good pieces / gemstones of Red Beryl on the market these days, and these little pieces will more than likely end up being a great bargain for somebody. These specimens were self-colllected in the late 1970s by Dave Bergman, a Colorado miner (the foreman and primary person in charge of recovering specimens at the famous Sweet Home Mine near Alma, Colorado during the late 1970s) and the maternal grandfather of Brian Kosnar.
