Beryl var. Heliodor
stock #14.1-229
Volodarsk-Volynskii
Zhytomyr Oblast', Ukraine
5.4 x 3.4 x 2.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $4200
Early summer 2021

A perfect, complete floater gem crystal with superb etching on all sides and both terminations. From the famed chamber pegmatites of Volodarsk which are unique in the world and the source of the world's best Heliodors. This crystal is pure gem grade, 52.5 grams, flawless inside and undamaged outside. It is like a piece of partly melted yellow ice. The color is the top greenish-yellow that this locale is known for. The two terminations are different in habit with one having several pointed tips which are highly sculptural. This specimen is superb for this locality, as fine a small cabinet as possible to find, and an incredible Beryl from anyplace in the world.

Winter 2016-17

A fine, perfect complete floater Heliodore gem crystal with no damage at all. Fine clarity and color with the elegant etching found only from the Valodarsk Pegmatite. Just under 7 grams and 100 percent facet grade. These have gotten to be very expensive on the market and much less available in affordable smaller specimens.

Heliodor - gemmy, etched Beryl
stock #14.1-230
Volodarsk-Volynskii
Zhytomyr Oblast', Ukraine
4.9 x 3.1 x 2 CM (miniature)
price: $1950
Fall 2015

A perfect complete etched floater Heliodor crystal from the famed (and now gone) Volodarsk deposit. This locale produced these remarkable Beryls in "chamber" pockets which are now highly prized. The complex sculpture of this specimen is impressive and esthetic. 100 percent gem grade, this is all facet grade with no internal flaws or veils, has great color and is a hefty 27.8 grams. In perfect condition with no chips, this can be displayed from any angle with impact far greater than its size. These are considered by many collectors the best Heliodore in the world.
