Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Albite
Skardu Road, Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.2 x 5.0 cm
A superb and aesthetic matrix aquamarine specimen from Pakistan and the Dave and Emily Stoudt Collection. A gorgeous, 3.3 cm, gem-clear aqua crystal with a very interesting, modified pinacoidal termination is dramatically set in a "boulder" field of sharp, blocky albite crystals.
