Here is a large 13.03 carat pezzottaite crystal that is highly lustrous and partially gemmy, and is colored a characteristic and unique raspberry red. this is a nice gemmy crystal with no dings or damage. Now that the type (and virtually only) locality know for this rare variety of beryl has closed, pezzottaite crystals have become really hard to find, so I was delighted when I found a few of these in Tucson this year.
