English: Beryl
Locality: Urucum mine (Tim mine; Córrego do Urucum pegmatite), Galiléia, Doce valley, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: cabinet, 16.2 x 7.5 x 6.4 cm
This pegmatite has produced arguably the best and largest number of fine morganites in the world from any one small find, back about 25 years ago now. This is a HUGE specimen with so much color and impact, because of the size, that it seems fake at first! It masses/weighs just over a kilo. This specimen is translucent to transparent throughout, highly lustrous, and a rich pink-lavender color that is distinct from that of the piece above. In fact, the color for this piece is really quite lovely and differrent from any other Brazilian morganite I have seen, beecause of this slight tint to lavender. This specimen can be viewed on either side, or stood vertically with the edge facing the viewer. On what I consider the back side, there are a couple of small, green elbaite prisms , and minor shcorls are included throughout. Despite its size, there is only the most trivial of dings in a few spots, nothing detracting - a miracle, given the size! This is one whopper of a morganite, both literally and figuratively, for ANY locale. IT IS MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!!!!
