Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Microcline
Espirito Santo, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 3.1 x 2.8 cm
An unusually shaped tabular aquamarine crystal sticks straight up off the matrix with a fine euhedral crystal of microcline leaning out from it at an angle, to create a really aesthetic specimen. The aqua is complete, undamaged, finely terminated and has good luster. Very odd, probably old specimen of Brazilian aqua.
