Beryl V. Aquamarine- unusual stepped termination
stock #17.1-536
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.7 x 3.7 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
Dec 2018

A bizzare, unique, rare but attractive Aquamarine. From the Erongo Mountains, (Hohenstien Massif) this is a complete, doubly terminated crystal. The flat termination is typical although in this case the corners have modified faces. The real interest is the other termination that is a series of hexagonal steps that are perfectly centered like a stairway or a turret. The 4 main steps or platforms are very flat and some edges have a little etching, the whole is therefore a reversed scepter. Some minor contacting/chipping is noted but overall the condition is excellent. A good display piece but especially a great addition for a suite of Namibian/ Erongo minerals, Beryls or exotic crystal forms.
Fluorite on Beryl (Aquamarine)
stock #18-AX-10-745
Gilgit, Gilgit district
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
7.3 x 5.2 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $600
Late Summer 2018

A choice combination specimen with light pink octahedral Fluorite on gemmy clear Aquamarine. The largest Beryl is 2.5 CM tall and well exposed on the matrix of Muscovite and Albite. This is a typical Northern Pakistan assemblage. The condition is quite fine, good magnification finds some tiny rough spots on a few Beryl edges but this is perfect by naked eye. Ex. William Hladysz collection. Separately both the Beryl and the Fluorite are fairly good but not extraordinary, however in a combination like this they are much more impressive.
Beryl (elongated crystals) on Muscovite
stock #8.1-130
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
7.8 x 5.4 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $420
Spring update

An unusual matrix plate well encrusted with Beryl (both Aquamarine and Goshenite) with fine clarity. The unusual part is the habit here, these are not the typical tabular crystals from Xuebaoding, but elongated prisms with truncated pyramids. Xuebaoding is a world famed locale and had produced many fine Beryls but almost always in a rare tabular habit. In 2006 a small zone with some elongated crystals produced these odd habit Beryl. This is a very good example from that find, there have been no more since.
Beryl v. Aquamarine -Classic locale.
stock #17.1-AX-20-163
Royalston, Worcester County
Massachusetts, United States
6.7 x 5 x 3.7 CM (cabinet)
price: $685
new june 17

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.
Beryl var Aquamarine with Schorl
stock #7 AE-097
Erongo Mountain, Karibib
Erongo Region, Namibia
10.1 x 9 x 6 CM (cabinet)
price: $720
Spring 2017

A very fine well composed large cabinet specimen with perfect Aquamarine crystals to about 3.5 CM. The Beryls are nicely perched, have gem clear terminations and good color. The matrix provides a good contrast and specimen sits well for display. Choice example from the prolific Erongo mountains, this is above average for quality and quite affordable for such an esthetic piece.
Beryl v. Aquamarine -second generation
stock #Alec-19-045
Erongo Mountain, Karibib
Erongo Region, Namibia
4 x 3.9 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $140
Winter 2016-17

A gemmy sharp Beryl is growing from a cluster of older, darker etched crystals. Very nice composition and in good condition, this is an eye catching small Erongo specimen. The main Beryl also has some etching and wispy inclusions, best seen with magnification. Reasonable cost for an attractive gem crystal.
Beryl v. Aquamarine with Albite
stock #ALEC-19-267
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
6.8 x 4.9 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $600
Fall 2015

Tabular style Aquamarine specimen from Xuebaoding is a modern classic. This one has excellent form and very good color, transparency and glassy luster. In fine condition this has very esthetic display impact. The main crystal is 3.9 CM across.
Beryl var. Aquamarine
stock #A7-044-1271
Sapucaia do Norte, Galileia Doce Valley
Minas Gerais, Brazil
6.6 x .8 x .5 CM (cabinet)
price: $320
Post Tucson 2015

A perfect floater etched Beryl crystal with pale green color more evident in person. No damage, the entire surface of this transparent crystal is the fine geometric etched patterns that make this type of Beryl so desirable. Bigger crystals with this degree of perfection are incredibly expensive, this smaller version is relatively affordable.
