Azurite with Malachite

ID: 6101
Add to OrderNot checked

Back in 2013, I was fortunate enough to be around when the “floaters” pocket (the one that was cemented shut late 2013) was being offered and I got to look at about 400 specimens from that pocket. In my opinion this was one of the top 10 pieces there. Most of the specimens had microscopic blemishes, but some had the electric color, superb luster and minor malachite. This is one of those with the color, luster and the form. Choice!

Beryl Var. Aquamarine (Cesium included)

ID: 6289
Add to OrderNot checked

During the summer of 2012, a small lot of the deep blue aquas appeared on the market and were thought to be Vorobyevite. After analysis by Dr. Federico Pezzotta in Milan, they were confirmed to be a cesium included beryl, but not rich enough to be vorobyevite. Most of the crystals found were under 2.5 cm wide, so this one would be in the top percent for quality color and crystal size (3.4 cm!). No more have been found.

Beryl Var. Aquamarine (ex Nelson Coll.)

ID: 3450
Add to OrderNot checked

A group of approximately 12 medium blue crystals that run from milky to gemmy, of the aquamarine variety of beryl, in parallel growth forming a divergent spray with textbook, complete terminations. There is one small broken crystal which prevents it from being a 360 degree rock, but as you can see from the photos, this miniature displays beautifully and is actually a good companion to the indicolite (no. 3449). Choice!
