Exceptional Helvite Specimen. The tabular dark brown crystal has a hole in one face that enters a small cavity inside the Helvite. Helvite is a rare Beryllium mineral with both sulfur and silica. Also on the piece are orange spessartite garnets and muscovite crystals. The matrix is a very thin crust that has crystals on the other side as well. A very fine specimen. Feel free to request other pictures by email of this piece (or any others you might be interested in.)
