This emerald from the Rist Mine in Hiddenite, Alexander County, North Carolina has a very light color and is on the borderline of being classified as emerald.  Its blue tint makes it also borderline aquamarine.  At any rate it is a fine 1/2 inch long sharp hexagonal green beryl crystal with sharp flat basal termination and no damage.  Dug by Bud Sigmon in the 1960's.  Darker than the pictures indicate.
