Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Miniature, 4.4 x 2.2 x 1.5 cm
A gemmy Brazilian aqua with glassy luster (which you cannot see from the photo). The termination has this weird natural feature that is hard to figure out: a recessed area with a plateau in the center raised slightly higher than the rest of the termination, like a column rising out of the termination. Weird! The crystal weighs 30 grams. No damage or contacts!
