Multiple Red Beryl crystals on Rhyolite matrix # RB03

Click on photos to enlarge

Rare, multiple Red Beryl crystals, on Rhyolite matrix!

This very colorful, and attractive cabinet specimen features several well formed crystals of Red Beryl on a snowy white Rhyolite matrix. Although they are smaller in size, you can see in the pictures that the crystal quality is: quite sharp; very gemmy and transparent/translucent; full of luster with the classic gooseberry color!

Although I did see some Red Beryl specimens at the previous Denver & Tucson Shows, I did not see any such as this one, with multiple crystals on matrix. I acquired this piece several years ago.

The latest news on the Violet mine is that the lower pit which produced the better quality specimens (like the ones featured here on my site), is now defunct. Although the upper pit is still some what active, the quality does not compare to those previously mined from the lower pit. This makes good quality specimens much tougher to find.


The Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in
Washington, D.C. refers to the Red Beryl it has on display as:
"The Rarest Beryls of them All"


These come from only one specific location on the entire planet earth:
Violet Claims Mine, Wah Wah Mountains
Beaver County (near Milford), Utah, USA

Measures in cm: 7.0 x 4.5 x 2.5
Crystal size in cm: 0.4

Three Superb Red Beryl crystals on Rhyolite matrix!

This very colorful, and attractive small cabinet specimen features one larger, and 2 smaller Red Beryl crystals on a snowy white Rhyolite matrix. As you can see in the photographs, the crystal quality is: quite sharp; very gemmy and transparent/translucent; full of luster with the classic gooseberry color! All the terminations are clean and sharp.

Although I did see some Red Beryl specimens at the previous Denver & Tucson Shows, I did not see any such as this one, with multiple crystals on matrix. I acquired this piece a couple of years ago.

Rare, choice, multiple Red Beryl crystals on Rhyolite matrix!

This is the largest specimen of the world famous Red Beryl on Rhyolite matrix,
that I am offering for sale here!
It features two larger (1.0 + 1.3 cm. long!) Red Beryl crystals,
surrounded by several smaller ones,
elegantly perched on a bright white Rhyolite matrix.
There is some crazing throughout this crystal cluster, but no damage.
This is rather typical in Red Beryl crystals of this size.
Still, they display very good color, hexagonal terminations, and are gemmy!


Overall, this is a very visually striking larger piece!
You will not find many of these out there, priced so reasonably well!
Trimmed to display very well on its bottom side.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
