This exquisite large gem-quality heliodor beryl crystal is from one of the world’s premier locale for this variety of gem beryl at Volodarsk-Volynskii in Ukraine. While there are some ongoing attempts to find more supply of these precious gem crystals, the majority of the Ukrainian heliodor specimens in the market today were collected prior to the early 2000’s. This specimen is spectacular because of its flawless gem-quality interior and complex, geometric etching patterns which are present on the prism and terminal faces of the crystal. The luster of this crystal is “glassy”, the color is a very strong greenish-yellow, and the hexagonal crystal form and termination are quite well-defined for the locality. With an unusual tapered termination and lustrous faces along with exceptional color, this crystal ranks in the top percent of what has ever been found at this historical locality. The weight of this fine gem crystal is 396.8 grams. Ex. Proctor Family Trust Collection.
