Seite 19 - Hill, there occurs a peculiar brown or bronze corundum, known locally as "pearl corundum," which shows distinct asterism, both by natural and artificial light, when the alone is cut en cabochon. In natural light these corundums all show a bronze luster and are somewhat similar to the cat's-eye, but in artificial light the star is more distinct. Most of the bronze corundum is in rough crystals, but some have been found that have the prismatic faces smooth and well developed, and these are often dark,...

The unaltered rock appears at Stony Point at a depth of 26 feet and is unusually hard, especially the walls of the gem-bearing pockets. An exceptionally clear and reliable account of the search for minerals in Alexander County which resulted in the final uncovering of the important emerald and beryl deposits of Stony Point, has been given by the developer of the first emerald mine in this country, William E.

This belt has sometimes been called the chrysolite or chromiferous series, owing to the presene of chrysolite containing chromite, from the former of which corundum was believed, by certain authorities, to have been derived by alteration.
Seite 32 - In Haywood County a number of crystals of amethyst have been secured, some of which were cut into very fine gems. In 1894 Mr. TK Brunner, of Raleigh, reported a yield of amethysts from Catawba, Macon, Wake, Lincoln, and other counties in the State; and in 1898 he stated that large amethysts of good color were still found in Lincoln County, together with smoky and lighter colored varieties. In 1901 there was a decidedly promising effort to prosecute mining for amethysts on a commercial scale at Tessentee,...
