Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Garnet Group
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Thumbnail, 6.3 x 2.4 x 2.1 cm
A STRIKING, glassy, transparent to translucent aquamarine crystal with included garnet crystals from Pakistan. The upper 2.5 cm of the aqua is GEM-clear! A trivial amount of termination edge damage is barely noticeable. Moreover, it is only RARELY that you find garnet crystals included in aquamarine from Pakistan (or anywhere for that matter). I have continued trying to put one or two really fine gallery-level pieces in each auction and this is yet another. It is QUITE impressive in person... 6.3 x 2.4 x 2.1 cm
