SummaryEdit

Description
English: Beryl (Var.: Emerald), Calcite
Locality: Coscuez Mine (Cosquez Mine), Muzo, Vasquez-Yacopí Mining District, Boyacá Department, Colombia (Locality at mindat.org)
This gorgeous specimen has two beautiful deep-green emerald crystals perched among jewel-like, multifaceted calcites that really accent the emeralds and contrast with the green. The major emerald atop is 1.5 cm long and is exceptionally gemmy. In fact, it contains gem rough equal to several thousand dollars in cutting value. It literally glows with bright color and internal brilliance. The secondary crystal is equally good interms of gem rough value and quality, though it has a minor ding on the upper edge of its termination that detracts a little bit, as a specimen. I was tempted to remove this crystal entirely as it has also some gem value (especially as it seems to extend inwards under the calcite!). However, I decided to leave it in, as the extra color splash really does add panache to the specimen and the small ding isn't visible from afar anyhow. Nevertheless, it could be clipped and sold as facet rough down the road. 4.4 x 4 x 3 cm
