A great combination specimen from a pocket zone of a pegmatite. All of the said minerals are fine examples of minerals which commonly occur in pegmatites, but uncommonly forms crystals of such perfection. The Beryl, is an aquamarinne crystal, with a rare tabular form and complex faces. It is lustrous and has a good light aqua color. Interestingly the Beryl crystal seems to penetrate the backside and emerges as the other half of of the crystal. There is one other smaller crystal of Beryl along the side. The Quartz is waterclear, perfectly formed and is 2cm with a few sidekicks. All over the matrix are thin, perfectly formed yellowish white Muscovite crystals.
