Stunning photos Mike and fine specimens. I especially like the second trapiche emerald in matrix. A truly great specimen. And the color-zoned beryl from Australia is remarkable.

Thanks John and Chris. That is the only Australian beryl in matrix that I have seen since I picked that one up many years ago.

Hi Am, I agree with the others; I like the Australian Emerald and the lovely quartz specimen from Burma ( http://www.mineral-forum.com/message-board/files/burmalarge1_473.jpg ) most.
