“Beryl is a mineral composed of beryllium aluminium cyclosilicate with the chemical formula Be3Al2(SiO3)6. Morganite, also known as “pink beryl”, “rose beryl”, “pink emerald”, and “cesian (or caesian) beryl”, is a rare light pink to rose-colored gem-quality variety of beryl. The pink color of morganite is attributed to Mn2+ ions.” Wikipedia > R

New interpretation of a sample I’ve already posted in the past. Miniatures, 37 mm long, showing two quarrels crystals of hematite on whose faces of pinacoide appear crystals in growth growth. A Classic of this fabulous location in Val Devero, which has provided new and very rare minerals (in particular arsenous and arseniti) unique in the world. The Ematiti of cervandone, although not presenting large crystals, are among the most beautiful in the world for paragenesis, sharpness, lucenteza and morphology. If anyone is interested, I remember the article recently appeared on pencil and related to the ematiti of the cervandone.
