DescriptionEMERALD IN MATRIX
Coscuez, Boyaca Department, Colombia
As much as the World believes fine, large Emeralds to be rare, there is at least one thing rarer: Uncut, fine, large Emerald crystals still in their original matrix. Here we see a very sizable 1 5/8 x 5/8 inch diameter hexagonal prism of this exotic variety of Beryl. The large, terminated single crystal is partially surrounded by the 'typical' gray calcite crystals that Emeralds from this locality are occasionally found in. A sprinkling of small, brassy Pyrite crystals firmly establishes the Colombian origin of this wonder. Not often do Emerald specimens of this caliber make their way to market. It probably was mined in the 1960's. 2 ½ x 1 5/8 x 1 ¼ inches with custom base.
Estimate: $20,000 - $25,000.
