I like the indentations of the missing spessartites on the prismatic face of the beryl. Nice.

The dealer I purchased this from field collected the specimen. I guess it's possible he made a mistake in the label.

Do you have any city name to go with it? The Whites run from the Nevada boarder to just south of Lone Pine.Lots of old mines all along the area if you have 4x4 and like to hike a lot.
