SOLD Beryl var. Emerald - Antique Austrian classic
Habachtal
Salzburg, Austria
8.4 x 4.5 x 2.3 CM (cabinet)
price: $0
Pre Tucson

A fine old Habachtal specimen with exceptional color and very gemmy crystals that are well-presented on the contrasting dark schist matrix. From the company of famed Paris dealer Nérée Boubée (1806-1862) , this is extraordinary for the locality. The original label is included from the early address Place Saint-André-des-Arts in Paris, but the exact date is unclear. Crystals present on all sides have the deep green fire color and a clarity unlike the usual milky to opaque Beryls. If not for the obvious Austrian matrix these crystals could be confused with Colombian Emeralds. The larger crystals are up to 2 CM long, sharp, transparent and several are terminated.
