Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Medina, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 1.9 x 1.6 cm
This aquamarine is absolutely WEIRD and very rare! What you have here are two terminations on the same end of the crystal! The outer one forms a sort of cap over the one underneath; there is space between the two, and you can look into this space and see the termination below. So this is not a usual "scepter," though the etching on the rest of the crystal shows that etching played a part in forming this weird specimen.
