Chrysoberyl / Locality - Ambatondrazaka District, Alaotra-Mangoro Region, Toamasina Province (Tamatave), Madagascar


Shipping to United States: Free

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 piece 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 decent gemminess. The piece is actually twinned showing the classic "sixling" form for which Chrysoberyls are known. The habit of this specimen is typical from the locality, but it’s larger than nearly every other piece I’ve seen, and certainly worthwhile for any collector to pick up as these specimens are hard to come by on the market.
