BERYLLONITE   Locality: Palermo #1 Mine, N. Groton, NH
2.5 mm field of view with annotation to indicate orientation of beryllonite "cordwood logs".

Species:           BERYLLONITE
Locality:          Palermo #1 Mine, N. Groton, NH
Specimen Size: 2.5 mm field of view with second photo annotated to indicate orientation of beryllonite "cordwood logs".
Field Collected: Walter Lane material from MMNE
Catalog No.: u1263
Notes: A specimen re-photo. These "cordwood log" disk habit beryllonite crystals are difficult to photo.
Uncertain as to the identification of the red-orange prisms. I had tentatively labeled these as schoonerite due to color simalarity to a classic appearing schoonerite spray a few mm away. But this is just a guess.
These Beryllonite crystals are on a rather remarkable thumbnail size specimen. Also on this specimen are hydroxylherderite crystals, etched acquamarine beryl, and schoonerite crystals. One of the schoonerite crystal groups can be seen in this image on the left side of the beryllonite. The specimen is an interesting study in associations. The etched beryl is likely contributing the berylium for the beryllonite and hydroxylherderite.

BERYLLONITE   Locality: Chickering Mine, Walpole, NH
4.5 cm specimen with green, soft - hardness ~ 2.5, mica in milky quartz matrix

Species:           BERYLLONITE
Locality:          Chickering Mine, Walpole, NH
Specimen Size: 3.4 mm field of view. Cluster of "cogwheel" or "cordwood" beryllonite crystals on black schorl crystal.
