Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 1.3 x 1.3 cm
A beautiful GEM crystal of aquamarine that has it all: color, pristine glassy transparency, and glassy luster on the faces as well. It is also DOUBLY-TERMINATED, with a pristine termination on top and a rather rough but complete one (with some matrix attachment) on the bottom. They just do not get much better than this cutter-quality crystal. Weighs 16 grams.
