Grenville, -Beryl Pit, Quadeville, Ontario

The Beryl Pit has been a classic Grenville collecting spot for decades. I collected there 55 years ago as a young teenager! One of the best minerals in the pegmatite is euxenite that forms in excellent crystals like these ones!

  • A rather large exenite crystal, plus some smaller ones are exposed in this pegmatite matrix composed of mostly feldspar but with lots of magnetite and columbite on the back. The main crystal has a fracture but it is stable and well held in place. Excellent example!
