Item Description

From a find in the Fall of 2004. This is a great rarity for Beryl. A few years ago, I remember seeing some very interesting, rare bi-color crystals of Beryl from Pakistan that were tabular with a pink core and a blue ring surrounding it. These new crystals are even more rare and interesting as they feature the same pink and blue bi-color, but with much more attractive prismatic crystals. This thumbnail size specimen hosts a few very attractive lustrous, sharp, very well formed, gemmy, crystals with a pale pink color in the center and gemmy blue terminations with a slight "cat's eye" appearance. The crystals are sitting on white bladed Albite matrix with minor Muscovite. This is a great rarity to find prismatic Morganite from any locality. The quality of these crystals is great and the fact that this is prismatic Morganite makes it highly desirable. A cool gem crystal specimen from Pakistan! Valued at $400.
