Small, white Bavenite crystals are found on one surface of this Beryl crystal. The specimen is from a small, obscure quarry. The only specimen posted on mindat is similar, but the Beryl is described as altered - but to what is not mentioned. The Beryl of this specimen also has an altered look to it.
Flaws: The Beryl crystal is not terminated.
