Item Description

A lovely thumbnail specimen of greenish-golden colored Beryl from the Beryl Mountain Quarry in South Acworth, New Hampshire. This locality has been known since the 1820s and produced some notably large individual crystals of Beryl, some measuring up to 4 or 5 feet in length! This piece show good hexagonal prism faces on all sides, and one end is terminated, as I can see small pinacoid-esque reflections when it is rotated in the light. If you collect pegmatite minerals, worldwide Beryls, thumbnails or minerals of New England, don't miss out on this one.
From the collection of Jack Arbiser, MD,PhD an internationally known dermatologist who specializes in minerals of the Southeast USA and Israel. He obtained his BS and MS in organic chemistry at Emory University. During his masters degree, he introduced Drs Dennis Liotta and Dr Raymond Schinazi, who developed Emtriva, an antiviral cocktail which transformed HIV/AIDS from a death sentence to a chronic disease. He obtained an MD and PhD (genetics) at Harvard Medical School, dermatology residency at Harvard, and Howard Hughes fellowship with Dr Judah Folkman, father of the field of angiogenesis. Dr Arbiser was the first to show how dominant oncogenes stimulate angiogenesis. He returned to Emory, where he became the inaugural Thomas Lawley Professor of Dermatology. He has cofounded Accuitis, a clinical stage company focusing on inflammation and fibrosis, and ABBY with a novel compound for brain tumors.
