Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm
An absolutely glass-clear and super-gemmy aquamarine floater crystal with a beautiful, natural pebbly surface from etching by corrosive solutions in the pocket. It is DOUBLY-TERMINATED (one termination has some small natural pockmarks in it). What is wonderful about this crystal is that it is somewhere between a euhedral (regular flat-faced) crystal and a more typically-etched crystal that has lost its faces. It still has its faces, but also has this beautiful surface. And it is truly SO gemmy you cannot believe it! Weighs 8 grams.
