A fine matrix specimen featuring a 1.0 x 0.7 x 0.6 cm emerald crystal beautifully perched atop a mounded matrix of calcite and shale with sparkly pyrite microcrystals. The gemmy and lustrous crystal is richly saturated, a deep emerald-green and is so transparently clean that you can look right through it. Note as an added bonus, that there is a tiny pyritohedron set on the side of the emerald and also a 3 mm emerald on the matrix. Ex. Saller Collection of Germany.
