ETCHED BERYL VAR. HELIODOR - MINAS GERAIS, BRAZIL
Minas Gerais, Brazil
Spectacular gem, large, etched, lustrous heliodor crystal. You can see the intense luster and perfect internal gemminess! Quite large for the species.
Natural etching in the pocket resulted in its having the appearance of a stack of flattened cylinders! This phenomenon occurs when the solution in the pocket where the crystal has grown becomes corrosive.
First pictures taken in sunlight outside. Last pictures taken inside with LED.
Comes with acrylic box.
