5.4 x 4.1 x 3.1 cm. These Connecticut beryls have gotten so hard to obtain, particularly in this size and quality! This is a superb old-timer! It is a fat, chunky, DOUBLY-TERMINATED, 130-gram crystal that is complete all the way around and undamaged. It is translucent-to-transparent (so many are opaque), and you can see will into the wonderful top termination. The faces are razor-sharp, and lustrous. Ex. Elling collection.
