Largest Crystal Size: 50 mm

A beryl crystal from Sörhällan quarry that I believe is partly or near compltely altered to bertrandite (not analyzed)
50 mm long and 14 mm across. I can not be sure but looks like cerphosphorhuttonite embedded in the bertrandite and the schorl, but I have no way to identify that for the time being. Black schorl is also present together with quartz.

Three (two shown in this picture) beryl crystals on this specimen, the biggest one measuring 115 mm and 16 mm across. It is possible that some of the beryl has started to alter to bertrandite.
