Beryl var. Emerald in Schist
stock #17.1-AL-12-379
Tokovaya River, Malyshevo Ekaterinburgskaya Oblast
Urals Region, Russia
7.5 x 4 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Fall 2015

A classic old Russian Emerald specimen with a sizable (2.7 CM) terminated prism that is well exposed on its schist matrix. The crystal is quite transparent with a few inclusions. Some additional Beryl crystals are also on the matrix. We have photographed this with "normal" display lighting, if it is backlit it displays with clarity.
Beryl v. Emerald
stock #8.1-387
Coscuez Mine
Boyaca, Colombia
6.2 x 4.8 CM (small cabinet/ large miniature)
price: $2900


A very impressive specimen! The Emerald is of the fatter type with basel termination, excellent clarity, and good but not superb color (which is why this large crystal was not cut but survived as an affordable specimen). Sits well and draws the eye from across the room. A quite large crystal for a matrix piece from this mine (2.2 x 1.7 CM). Good condition, there are micro chips but no real damage, the "bottom end" of the crystal is contacted and does not show a clear termination. This quality is now very hard to get iCn olombia. A lot of good green glass for the money!
Beryl V. Emerald -vanadium rich
stock #4.2-387.1
Malipo, Wenshan
Yunnan, China
7.9 X 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $220


A quite sizable (7.9 CM) and impressive Chinese Emerald with the typical color from this find. This Beryl is not gemmy except on thin edges and not colored by Chromium as are the Colombian Emeralds. Despite that this is still attractive and affordable. The crystal has been repaired (1x) and shows also a natural break and re-healing. A very good addition to a suite of Beryl, Chinese minerals or just as an attractive display piece.
