Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Spessartine, Schorl, Muscovite
Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Cabinet, 12.7 x 10.0 x 5.5 cm
A STRIKING and DRAMATIC CABINET Pakistan combination piece. Gemmy and lustrous, etched aquamarine crystals to 9.0 cm rest amongst gemmy and lustrous spessartine garnets to 1.8 cm, lustrous schorl crystals, and lustrus muscovite books on albite matrix. The vertical aqua crystals and capping large spessartine and schorl really make this a beautiful piece. Extremely trivial damage overall, and complex aesthetics, make this a unique piece for the collector of alpine minerals from this part of the world. 12.7 x 10.0 x 5.5 cm
