This is a large and beautiful combo piece featuring a water-transparent, very light blue aquamarine crystal (2.5 cm) jutting out of a matrix studded with quartz crystals, muscovite books and a large, sharp, textbook orthoclase crystal (right near the aqua). There is another fine orthoclase crystal near the larger one.
