What an interesting inside structure. Would it be kin to spirals seen in the center of some beryls?

It is similar to the helical spirals. This one has what appears to be stacked discs at the top and bottom of the crystal. The section between the stacked discs is more amorphous and could be fragmented stacked discs.
