Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 1.3 x 1.3 cm
This is just an amazing specimen of aquamarine. The crystal grew in tiers like the Chrysler tower - it is not technically a scepter, in that what you have is a slender inner crystal which itself terminated in tiers with multiple terminations, then was wrapped by a later crystal to form yet another termination/plateau about half-way up. The whole thing is gemmy as can be. And amazingly, it is terminated at both ends - a floater, complete all around, with no damage. WOW!
