Beryl Var. Bi-colored in a Biotite cast after Beryl. Ex H. Obodda Coll.

ID: 6200
Add to OrderNot checked

A bi-colored naturally etched beryl crystal (pastel blue and pink) sits inside a pastel greyish cast of biotite crystals. Herb’s label says aquamarine, but I believe the center of the crystal runs towards pink morganite. One of the most unique specimens I have ever encountered. * For some reason I could not get blue color correctly on photos, they appear greener than they are, instead of blue.

Medium to dark blue spheroidal groups and coatings of compact plumbogummite crystals over yellow pyromorphite crystals that sit on a white matrix.

Very sharp, Tsumeb deep blue prisms of azurite to 3 cm scattered and in parallel growth, on a matrix that is sprinkled with malachite.
