Lot Details
Exceptional Beryl, var. Heliodor—A Member of the 100 Carats Club
Brazil
This triangular-shaped beauty possesses the sort of qualities one would expect from a world-class example of a mineral species: the luster is bright, the transparency excellent--the color, well-saturated, but not too dark golden yellow--and the size, in particular for this species, makes this a sought-after stone for the knowledgeable collector.
Weighing approximately 132.75 carats and measuring 37.0 x 36.0 x 22.5mm
