This is not your average Heliodor from Madagascar. This one is exceptional both in terms of gemminess and color. The color is as perfect as it gets for golden beryl - it is the color of apple juice - highly saturated orangish-yellow. It's hard to tell from the photos, but the interior of this crystal is gem-clear, so this is perfect as a mineral specimen or to be used as gem cutting rough. The exterior has a hexagonal circumference and the surface has vertical straiations. The termination is etched and has casts of where other beryl crystals appear to have once grown. 

The specimen comes with a labeled acrylic display base.
