ID: CC20404
A well formed and terminated Beryl crystal, variety Heliodor, from the Klein Spitzkoppe (Spitzkopje) granite stock in the Erongo Region of Namibia.  This ex-matrix crystal is mild lemon-yellow merging to an acidic siskin-green; a beautiful and subtle colour for Heliodor.  The front prism faces are smooth and glassy, whereas the back face is vertically striated, probably the imprinted habit of an adjacent species while in-situ.  The pinacoid termination is pitted and partly chipped, but makes a good display specimen form this stunning location.
