This incredibly powerful light workers tool should be treated with great respect.  It is a very rare crystal.  Due to similarities, Phenacite was long mistaken for Quartz.  As a result when it was identified as a new mineral it took its name from the Greek work meaning ‘to deceive’.  Although similar to Quartz in appearance, the indices of refraction are higher, which means that when faceted, it has a brilliance not dissimilar to Diamond.  It can be found in the Urals (in Emerald and Topaz mines), in Colorado, Brazil, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Norway.  It is a rare beryllium mineral (same family as Emerald and Aquamarine) from the Silicate class. It can appear colourless, white, greyish, pinkish, brownish and yellow.
