Dache (Dassu; Dasu; Haramosh-Dassu; Dacha), Haramosh Mts., Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 2.9 x 2.1 cm
This rather stout, hexagonal crystal of very pale blue Beryl (essentially colorless) has sharp, well-defined faces, good luster on select faces, and a nice termination, but the most interesting aspect of the piece is the fact that it has some incredibly beautiful and unique "feather"-like, (almost resembling cotton) inclusions inside of the water-clear upper portion of the crystal. Even though the inclusions have no defined form, they are certainly ethereal and wispy in appearance.
