Item Description

A large emerald nicely set in muscovite schist matrix from the famous emerald mines at Malyshevo, Urals. The euhedral, lustrous, pastel-green crystal is crudely terminated. The backlit photos highlight the color and translucency. Classic Russian material and highly representative of this important locality. This is a HUGE example for the location, and should not be treated as just a locality piece. Valued $900-ish.
