Beryl var. Goshenite

The colorless variety of beryl—Goshenite—is rare. Large Goshenites, such as this one, are difficult to find in the market. The name for this gemstone derives from Goshen, Hampshire County, Massachusetts, which was one of the first areas in which this variety of beryl was discovered. Today it can be found in several countries, but most are mined in Brazil, America, Canada and Burma. The present, large cushion-shaped stone of near-colorless beryl known in the trade as Goshenite. Weighing approximately 7.94 carats and measuring 13.8 x 10.9 x 7.9mm


Provenance: Ex. Bill Larson Collection, Fallbrook, California
