Here is an excellent specimen of the rare mineral BERYLLONITE - a sodium beryllium phosphate which occurs as a secondary beryllium mineral in granitic and alkalic pegmatites. The tabular, prismatic monoclinic crystals can be colorless, white or pale yellowish, and are transparent with a vitreous luster. This specimen comes from the Teliorio Mine in Linopolis, Minas Gerais, Brazil. We picked this newly unearthed gem out of the stock of our friend Luis Menezes, a Brazilian wholesale dealer, at the Tucson Gem Rock & Mineral Show.
