This super dark smoky quartz is 2 inches in diameter and 5 inches long. It is damaged on both ends, but a nice piece anyway. The color is very dark brown, and much of the center is of gem quality. This piece is from a finished Peter Samuelson location, and was strewn as rubble down the hill.

Bonnet Shores, Narragansett, Washington Co., Rhode Island, USA

Dimensions: 1 cm x 0.5 cm x 0.5 cm

these three specimens are roughly the same size. each is approximately 1cm x .5cm x .5cm. The one on the left has the nicest form, while the ones on the right are slightly less opaque. These Heliodor came from a vein in Narragansett, the first such vein discovered in the state to produce any large quantities of beryl. These heliodor, along with approximately 150 more of varying quality, plus fifteen larger opaque crystals the diameter of a golf ball or larger, and some dime to nickel diameter gemmy green beryl have been pulled from this new find. Several quartz crystals and crumbly garnets are also located here.
