Beryl var. Emerald wih Quartz
stock #18.1-056
Mina Amarillial, Cosquez, Municipio de Muzo
Boyaca, Colombia
5.4 x 4.8 x 2.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $850
Spring update

A two-sided specimen holding dozens of light to mid green Emerald crystals that are intermixed with Quartz crystals. Very unusual for a Colombian Emerald specimen, the usual association in Calcite. Prior to our finding this material the only Quartz matrix I have seen or know of for Emeralds is at Penas Blancas and it is very rare there. This little known cut near Coscuez has now produced a few of this rae combo. A choice and rare piece with many small, very clear Emeralds covering both sides of the matrix. With magnification the quality really stands out.

Beryl var. Emerald in Schist
stock #AX-12-379
Tokovaya River, Malyshevo Ekaterinburgskaya Oblast
Urals Region, Russia
7.5 x 4 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $750
Fall 2015

A classic old Russian Emerald specimen with a sizable (2.7 cm) terminated prism that is well-exposed on its Schist matrix. The crystal is quite transparent with a few inclusions. Some additional Beryl crystals are also on the matrix. We have photographed this with "normal" display lighting, if it is backlit it displays with clarity.

Beryl var. Emerald - vanadium rich
stock #4.2-387
Malipo, Wenshan
Yunnan Province, China
7.9 X 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $220


A quite sizable (7.9 CM) and impressive Chinese Emerald with the typical color from this find. This Beryl is not gemmy except on thin edges and not colored by Chromium as are the Colombian Emeralds. Despite that this is still attractive and affordable. The crystal has been repaired (1x) and shows also a natural break and re-healing. A very good addition to a suite of Beryl, Chinese minerals or just as an attractive display piece.
