ID: CC9069
A substantial and magnificent single crystal of Phenakite from the Krupskoye Emerald Deposit in the Middle Urals of Russia. The Phenakite crystal is translucent, colourless to light greyish white, with rounded double terminations, generally with a waxy lustre and adhering silvery-grey mica schist. This amazing deposit has only five recorded mineral species, yet these include Beryl (Emerald), Chrysoberyl (Alexandrite) and Phenakite. Phenakite is a rare beryllium nesosilicate and crystals of this size (4.2 x 5.3 x 3.7 cm) are phenomenal.
