Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Ganesh Himal deposit, Somdang, Rasuwa District, Bagmati Zone, Nepal
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 1.9 x 1.8 cm
A STRIKING, INTENSELY BLUE and very gemmy, doubly terminated aquamarine crystal from Nepal! Aquas from Nepal are very RARE, compared to Pakistan, and this is a REALLY GOOD one with unusually intense color and gemminess. The terminations are partially frosted and there is an unusual notch on one side but they are complete. This is from a one-time find two years ago. Weighs a hefty 44 grams.
