Beryl v. Aquamarine & Euclase on Quartz
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan Province, China
8 x 4.1 x 3.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $170
pre Tucson 2015 update

A rare combination piece combining Euclase and more typical species from the heyday of the Xuebaoding discoveries. This great locale produced incredible specimens of Scheelite, Cassiterite and many others, but Euclase was always rare. This specimen features a sizable (for the locale) over 7CM Quartz crystal with well formed free standing transparent Aquamarine Beryl. The specimen also features several Euclase to about 9MM that show some good transparency. The condition is good overall some backside area chipping is noted with magnification. We have never seen many Euclase from Xuebaoding and none for a few years.
