Beryl var. Emerald in Quartz from Dayakou Emerald Mine, China
Dimension: 7.1cm x 5cm x 3.5cm
Locality: Dayakou Emerald Mine, Malipo Co., Wenshan, Yunnan Province, China
A gorgeous specimen of Beryl var. Emerald in a Quartz from Dayakou Emerald Mine in Yunnan, China. Several prismatic hexagonal, slightly striated crystals of Emerald are embedded in the Quartz matrix which display medium to intense emerald-green color and high luster. Emerald in this example also occurs in massive aggregates of a rather generous proportion. It stands perfectly on its own and displays beautifully 180 degree, outstanding!
