Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Feldspar Group, Quartz
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Cabinet, 13.4 x 9.4 x 6.6 cm
There are two large quartz crystals on this specimen, one of them a distinct scepter. They are attached to a cluster of white, euhedral feldspar crystals, out of which poke two aquamarines - a small one on the front of the specimen, and a pristine gemmy one of 2 cm sticking out of the side. The relatively sharp crystals of feldspar instead of the usual blobby matrix make add distinction to this specimen.
