This is a beautiful specimen of the mineral beryl variety morganite.

You can seen a beautiful gemmy crystal sitting in the middle of the matrix. Got this sample some years back when morganite was still pretty unheard of in Singapore.
A close up of the crystal:

Did you know that morganite is named after a financier (and gem and mineral collector) J. P. Morgan?
