23268: Red Beryl - $125

Small cabinet - 7.4 x 4.0 x 1.0 cm (2.9 x 1.6 x 0.4 inches)
Weight - 28 grams (0.06 pounds)

This highly unusual red beryl specimen features a sparkling druze or crust of tiny, pink beryl crystals over one face of a flat rhyolite matrix. Many individual crystals are doubly terminated and gemmy. I have never seen a red beryl crust like this on another specimen (the Mindat red beryl gallery doesn't have one like it), and the pink color is unusual as well. Something different from Utah!
