HOLD Beryl var. Emerald - classic USA
stock #HOLD 20.1-179
Rist Mine, Hiddenite, Alexander County
North Carolina, United States
1.1 x .5 x .3 CM (thumbnail)
price: $280
new year 2021

A USA Emerald thumbnail from the Rist Mine in Hiddenite. Good deep green color and typical form make this a a nice example from this region. For all practical purposes this area in and near Hiddenite is the only decent source of Emeralds in the USA. This is an older specimen from the 1960's which was found before some of the greatest discoveries were made. Slightly etched on one side but still quite lustrous, this is doubly terminated and translucent to transparent.
