Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl, Quartz, Albite
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 8.7 x 6.0 x 4.2 cm
Beautiful large Aqua (8.7 x 3.2 x 3.2 cm) with exceptionally good color and internal phantoms. Not often will you find an Aqua with such a nice blue color, and it is intricately zoned near the termination with multiple shades of darker blue stripes, which contributes even more to the aesthetics. To add to the excellent luster, great size (8.7 x 3 cm!), and color, there is associated Schorl, Quartz, and Albite (anchoring the crystal to the matrix, so you can see it is not repaired) .
