Chrysoberyl is a species that is well known to collectors, but good specimens are only known from a handful of localities in the world. Typically, specimens from Brazil were the only good representation of Chrysoberyl on the market, unless one was lucky enough to obtain a fine Alexandrite from the Urals of Russia. This “floater” specimen is from an exciting discovery in Madagascar (early 2013). It shows a lovely vibrant yellow-green color along with sharp, lustrous, well-formed faces and slight translucency. The piece is actually twinned showing the classic "sixling" form for which Chrysoberyls are known. The habit and size of this piece is typical from the locality, and certainly worthwhile for any thumbnail collector to pick up as these specimens are hard to come by on the market. Enjoy.
