Lot 73174 Details

Description
BERYL var. HELIODOR & BERYL var. AQUAMARINE
Erongo Mountain, Erongo Region, Namibia

This unusual group of Beryl crystals from the Erongo, displays blue Aquamarine lower portions instantly shifting to deep yellow Heliodor in the upper portions of these crystals. There are four main crystals, the largest of which measures 2.12 inches (5.4 cm) in length and a hefty 1.14 inches (2.9 cm) in diameter. These are from a single find, and similar material has not been seen since. The waxy luster tends to obscure the transparency, and numerous tubes obscure whatever the luster doesn't. Condition is fine to excellent with minor nicking to some termination edges.
Overall measurements: 3.5 x 2.4 x 2.2 inches (9.0 x 6.0 x 5.5 cm)
