Thanks Tobi! It is an old and known locality for beryl. This is the only specimen we have ever run across from that area.

Old and known for sure, but very uncommon on the market, that was what I wanted to say ;-) I never came across even a humble beryl from Royalston. But maybe the chances of getting such a specimen are better in the U.S. than here in Europe. However, this is an outstanding crystal for that locality.
