Very unusual and showy aquamarine crystals clustered in an aesthetic arrangement with snow-white albite crystals from Ping Wu, China. The gemmy and very glassy, very light blue aquamarine crystals to 2.0 cm, are elongated. Most Ping Wu aquamarines are flattened, tabular. The two large aquamarines have unique, for Ping Wu, terminations, being hoppered and lightly frosted.
