A well formed, pale green Beryl crystal to 5cm with a tapered terminated end and hexagonal outline perched on a piece of Quartz-Feldspar pegmatite matrix.

Unfortunately the crystal must have popped out of it's place because a thin line of glue can be seen between the Bery crystal and the matrix, but honestly this si such a neat piece that I may have repaired it too!
