Ex. Wes Parker
A beautiful aquamarine crystal from the less well-known Padre Paraiso area of Minas Gerais. The glassy, highly lustrous crystal has vivid blue-green color, textbook hexagonal form and a striking, sharp, modified, pinacoidal termination. The crystal has excellent translucence, as the photo shows. This very fine crystal is complete-all-around and pristine. Ex. Wes Parker Collection. Weighs 195 grams.
