Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 1.8 x 0.8 cm
A superb, gemmy crystal of aquamarine, terminated on top, with a water-like clarity to it. It is an unusually flattened crystal, for the reason that it grew flat against matrix; the backside is a flat (natural) matrix contact. This fine and sizeable gem crystal weighs 23 grams.
