Item Description

An 8.4 cm long, lustrous and slightly translucent, deep forest-green elbaite crystal is partially encased by a cluster of doubly-terminated, lustrous and translucent, colorless quartz crystals, to 4 cm in length. In the center of the speecimen is a superb, doubly-terminated, lustrous and translucent, colorless beryl (var. goshenite) crystal, 2. 8 cm across. All of the species are sharply crystallized and sparkling - I have never seen this combination from Stak Nala before, and it is pretty, as well! Its gem weight is 115 grams. Amazing combination, and a rarity for the locality which has produced prodigious amounts of tourmaline, but very few beryls. Old Herb Obodda dealer stock
