MIN#Beryl-1 NEW!

Deeply colored Morganite crystal perched atop Cleavelandite matrix!
I don't see many Morganites with this depth of color. The crystal itself measures 7 cm in size
and features brilliant, glassy crystal faces. The interior is loaded with gemminess and the color
could best be described as a deep orangy-pink, almost peach color! The color is consistant
throughout the entire Morganite with a light frosting present on the top horizontal face. The
crystal is complete on all sides with only a couple of tiny internal stress lines of natural origin.
A Morganite of this quality is a rare prize indeed. This would make a great cabinet centerpiece.

From Dara-i-Pech, Kunar Province, Afghanistan.
Measures 7.2 cm by 13.3 cm by 8 cm in total size.

MIN#Beryl-2 NEW!

Lovely specimen featuring two Beryl var Aquamarine crystals crossing atop Albite with Apatite!
This is a true work of art. Both gemmy blue Aquamarines are doubly terminated, forming a Saint Andrew's
cross near the center. The right Aquamarine steps down below the cross but the form is perfect. Two pinkish
Apatite crystals measuring to 2.5 cm in size sit atop the specimen which is completely framed by bright white
crystals of Albite. The eye appeal and aesthetical qualities of this specimen are exceptional. No damage.
From Baha, Braldu Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Gilgit-Baltistan, Northern Areas of Pakistan.
Measures 8.7 cm by 5.5 cm by 4.6 cm in total size.

MIN#Beryl-3 NEW!

Absolutely stunning specimen featuring a perfect gem Morganite with Cleavelandite on Microcline!
This jewel is one of the most attractive Morganites specimens I've seen in year. The gemmy pink Beryl
measures jusst shy of 4 cm in width and sits atop a sculptured Microcline alongside freestanding blades
of slightly bluish-white Cleavelandite and Muscovite books. in direct lighting, the pink Morganite lights
up and glows and the entire specimen as a whole is incredibly aesthetic with no detractions or damage.

MIN#Beryl-4 NEW!

Gorgeous, glassy tabular crystals of Aquamarine with Muscovite!
This plate has a wonderful flash to it and the color of the Aquamarine crystals is much better
than what normally comes from this locale! I would place the depth of blue on par with the Aquamarines
one sees coming out of Afghanistan and that's pretty good for a Chinese specimen. The tabular crystals
are glassy and translucent with some gem. No real damage to speak of - only some bumps at the trimming.

From Mt. Xuebaoding, Sichuan Province of China.

MIN#Beryl-10 NEW!

Attractive specimen featuring two large crystals of Beryl var. Emerald on Schistic matrix!
The size of these Emerald crystals is very impressive considering that the specimen is from
Afghanistan and not Russia. Both crystals are fully terminated with flat terminations and have
better than average color with good translucency. They make a well matched pair of crystals
and display only a slight matrix influence. Both Emeralds measure 2.6 cm and 2.5 cm in size.
From Gamitha, Laghman Province, Afghanistan.
Measures 6.2 cm by 4.6 cm by 4.5 cm in total size.

MIN#Beryl-11 NEW!

Exceptional combination of Beryl var. Aquamarine perched atop Cassiterite!
Also with Muscovite, this is a superb Aquamarine combo and the aesthetics are incredible.
The largest Aqua crystal measures nearly 7 cm in size and displays a lovely blue coloration
along with glassy surfaces and a gemmy, transparent interior. It is accompanied by several
smaller Aquamarines and fine Muscovite blades along the left edge. The Aquamarine sits
aesthetically atop a super lustrous, black Cassiterite crystal measuring 3.6 cm in size. The
combo is in excellent condition with the only contact being along the bottom separation zone.
From Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China.

Tucson2013-195MorganiteAfghanistan.jpg (132034 bytes)

MIN#Beryl-16 NEW!

Lovely crystal of rosy-pink Morganite perched atop Cleavelandite!
I was drawn to this crystal at the show because of its rich color but fell in love with its unique
shape. The front side faces are textbook Beryl habit while the backside is complex and reflects
the influence of an associated matrix no longer present. I don't detect any damage on any of
the faces. The color is very good and the surfaces smooth and lustrous over a gemmy interior.
From Mawi, Nuristan Province, Afghanistan.
Measures 7 cm by 6.8 cm by 5 cm in total size.

MIN#Beryl-18 New!

Gemmy crystal of Beryl var. Heliodor!
This transparent gem glows in even faint light. The color and luster are strong and
both ends are terminated, with the bottom being etched as opposed to the perfect
termination at top. This crystal has a good amount of cutting material but why cut
such a lovely crystal? Especially since nature has already given it natural faceting.
From Carai, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
Measures 8.2 cm in length by 1.4 cm in width.

DEN2005-143pakiaqua.jpg (50566 bytes)

MIN#Beryl-19 NEW!

Large crystal of Beryl var. Aquamarine with smaller Aqua crystals and Muscovite at top!
The largest crystal is a whopper at 7.5 cm by 6 cm in width! A smaller 3 cm crystal sits
horizontally across the top termination and a family of even smaller Aqua crystals point
upwards above that one. I might point out that the bottom termination of the large crystal
is stepped! It almost appears that the crystal terminated around another Aquamarine but
the faces are smooth and unaltered. Still, I can't think of another explanation for the extra
crystal growth at bottom near the side edges. A very interesting and unique feature for sure!
The faces are glassy and reflective and the color is a much richer blue than your average Aqua.

From
Nagar, Hunza Valley, Northern Areas of Pakistan.
Measures 11 cm by 9 cm by 10.4 cm in total size.

MIN#Beryl-21 NEW!

Glassy Beryl var. Heliodor crystal nestled between Muscovite and Albite blades!
This 5.5 crystal is incredibly sharp on the front side for a Brazilian Beryl and completely
rehealed on the backside. The color is slightly greenish-yellow and the front faces display
the typical Beryl modifications. This specimen could actually be display front on as it
is in the above photograph or turned onto it's side. Either position looks great!

Beautiful specimen of Aquamarine crystals with Muscovite!
The color is an excellent rich blue and much deeper than normal for Afghanistan Aqua.
The largest crystal on the left measures 6 cm in length and has a unique stepping (modification)
along the top edges. This stepped is somewhat darker in color and nearly circles the entire termination!
The bottom side of the main crystal is rehealed as are the backsides of the smaller crystals to the right.

MIN#Beryl-24 NEW!

Fine translucent crystal of Beryl var. Emerald on Biotite matrix!
This lovely crystal is well formed and completely terminated. There is a good translucense
when the crystal is back lighted and this further accentuates the deep grassy-green color.

Tucson2010-62BerylBiColorMicroclineBahaPakistan.jpg (136847 bytes)

MIN#Beryl-25 NEW!

Pretty specimen featuring a bi-colored Aqua-Morganite on Microcline with Albite!
This gemmy 1.6 cm crystal shows much better pink and blue coloration than what I normally
see in bi-color Beryls from this locale. It's perfectly terminated at top and rehealed on the
bottom where it fractured in the pocket millions of years ago. The Microcline has a sharp
termination with shiny crystal faces. Jagged Albite crystals add a nice contrasting texture.

From Baha, S. W. Buspar Peak, Baltistan, Northern Areas of Pakistan.
Measures 5 cm by 5.6 cm in size.
