Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.3 x 2.8 cm
A substantial (92 grams), incredibly gemmy aquamarine; so gemmy, in fact, that you can look through the top termination, through 5 1/2 cm of aquamarine, and read typed letters with absolutely NO DISTORTION. The termination is glassy and pristine, and the form is textbook. The bottom is mostly terminated as well, with just a couple of shallow chips. On some of the side faces are strange and interesting growth patterns. A really exceptional aqua! 5.4 x 3.3 x 2.8 cm
