Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Galileia, Doce Valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 2.5 x 2.2 cm
This is a fine aquamarine floater crystal, with just the slightest hint of blue to it. The faces are naturally etched, giving it a frosty look. One termination is glassy the other is frosty like the rest of the crystal. There is a strange frothy-looking "tube" running down through the center of the crystal. This impressive crystal weighs in at 110 grams.
