Royalston Massachusetts is a legendary classic locality for gem Beryl with occasional finds over the past 180 years. This specimen shows the typical habit with a single crystal 5.4 CM long that is nearly all gem clear. The crystal also shows an old break that is rehealed with a thin line of Quartz dividing the prism into two sections. Much prized by collectors of classic minerals, these are not often available. One old repair is noted on close exam but nearly all of these have at least one.
