Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Albite
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Cabinet, 15.0 x 14.0 x 12.0 cm
The crystal here is very GLASSY and has a high color saturation for an aqua from Shengus. It measures 9 x 3.5 x 3 cm in size and rises majestically from the matrix. It presents as a dramatic specimen because the 9-cm-tall aqua is perched on CRYSTALLIZED matrix, for startling contrast not just in color but in crystal form as well.
