This beryl is 2cm x 2cm x 1.5 cm. It is a nice translucent to transparent crystal with some gemminess to it. It is fully terminated at one end. This beryl was found in Rhode Island in a vein in Narragansett. This is not the first beryl ever discovered in Rhode Island, but is the first found in any larger quantity. This specimen and others like it came out of a feldspar/quartz pegmatite matrix.
