Found in ca. 2009.


RM920   Emerald Beryl with calcite

Coscuez mine, Muzo, Vasquez-Yacopí, Boyacá, Colombia

A very sharp emerald crystal "trapped" between calcite crystals. The color, transparence and brilliance of these crystal are more than excellent. It shows a very defined prism, with a perfect top pinacoidal face and hints faces of the dipyramid, observed between the prism and the pinacoid. Some interesting color zoning can be observed in its lower part. A true gemmy miniature.

Main crystal: 11 x 5 mm.


RM921   Emerald Beryl with calcite

Coscuez mine, Muzo, Vasquez-Yacopí, Boyacá, Colombia

A gemmy emerald crystal with an intense color, disposed very aerial on a matrix with calcite and small crystals of the same mineral. It shows a developed prism, with curious growths on faces, and a terminal pinacoid showing natural corrosion forms and a small dent, which does not affect its aesthetics. Good transparence and brilliance. Good choice with an excellent price.

Size: 4,5 x 4,5 x 2,4 cm.
Main crystal: 11 x 7 mm.
