Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Small Cabinet, 5.6 x 1.9 x 1.6 cm
Medina, Minas Gerais, Southeast Region, Brazil
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.
