Beryl var. Emerald
Muzo Mining District
Boyacá, Colombia
2.3 x 1.8 x 1.4 CM (thumbnail)
price: $1950
Late Summer 2018

A single fat gem crystal with excellent color, very sharp edges, lustrous faces and fine display impact. 8.9 Grams a few inclusions but with good transparency, this was mined in 2007. A small area of attached shale on the backside/bottom is the only matrix, this is all Beryl. It has gotten very uncommon to find such good single gem crystals in Colombia. Newer methods of treatment, filling and enhancement means these can be consumed by gem cutters for much more expensive jewelry. In excellent condition and better in person.
