Myself with a Beryl Cluster

Myself working on large 4 beryl cluster in the stubborn quartz core during the early summer of 2014. Fortunately, I was able to free it with minor repairs.

Beryl Crystal in Situ - Prospect #4

00480410014946676735444.jpg
Case Quarries, Portland, Middlesex Co., Connecticut, USA

A beryl crystal showing the typical 'steeple' growth pattern seen at the Case quarries. The root of the beryl begins in the wall zone and terminates into a stubby, well formed crystal in the quartz core. This beryl is about 14cm long. Unfortunately, as is the case with many of the crystals in this zone, it fell apart upon removal.

Unidentified mineral

I found this specimen in an old phosphate mine. Possibly thinking that the blue is vivianite and the crystals inside are strunzite or apatite
