Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 6.8 x 2.7 x 2.4 cm
From the collection of Steve Smale, a striking cluster of gem aquamarine crystals, tightly intergrown and tapering out slightly at the top. The terminations are all complete - flat and glassy. There is no matrix - the cluster was removed intact at the matrix contact on the bottom. Displays beautifully - a fine gem crystal specimen.
