Chrysoberyl - Derived from the Greek word "Berillos" meaning "gold white spar".Despite the similarity of their names, chrysoberyl and beryl are two completely different gemstones. Chrysoberyl is the third-hardest frequently encountered natural gemstone.Ordinary chrysoberyl is yellowish-green and transparent to translucent. When the mineral exhibits good pale green to yellow color and is transparent, then it is used as a gemstone.
Azurite with Malachite - Group of sharp doubly terminated crystals, one of them clearly dominant. They have the extraordinary deep blue color (“electric blue”) typical of the best samples from Milpillas and are slightly coated by Malachite. Nice miniature.
