Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Muscovite
Mt Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Prefecture, Sichuan Province, China
Cabinet, 11.4 x 9.2 x 6.2 cm
This is a sharp tabular aquamarine crystal of this style that measures 10 cm from side-to-side. And for its size, it is actually fairly gemmy as well. What is more, the crystal is complete and undamaged. It has natural etching on its front and back faces. The aquamarine is thick too, measuring 2.5 cm thick. There are two generations of attractive muscovite crystals decorating the side of the aquamarine (smaller crystals growing on the large ones) .
