Item #10414
Volodarsk, Ukraine

This heliodor crystal from the Ukraine is about as good as it gets for its size. It is 3.6 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm and weighs 8.5 grams. It is nearly flawless nearly inside and out. There is a single very thin needle-like tube inside. All of the sides and both terminations are etched with very interesting patterns. The color is yellow with a hint of green. Most flawless gem pieces like this are heated (to turn them deep blue) and then cut. This is a shame because heliodor is actually much more uncommon than aquamarine.
