Emerald in Calcite, Muzo, Columbia, Collected circa 2005, Kalaskie Collection #1191, Miniature 1.5 x 2.5 x 4.5 cm, $450.00. Online 6/12.
Gemmy, beautiful green prismatic emerald crystals to 0.5 cm in calcite matrix. I carefully examined this piece for evidence of repair, reconstruction, etc. and I can't see anything ominous. There's a hair-thin line near the base of the principal crystal but the termination is clean which is always a positive when looking for repairs. Matrix looks normal. Collected circa 2005. Betty Kalaskie Collection #1191.
