A large beryl crystal lies on a host rock of quartz and polylitionite. The beryl crystal nearly spans the length of the specimen, and is over 3cm in width. It has a slightly distorted hexagonal cross section, is white, translucent, and has a slightly dulled but otherwise vitreous luster. There are other minerals (light brown and black) on the surface, giving the crystal a dirty appearance in places.
