Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Gilgit, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 1.1 x 1.0 cm
A very gemmy, doubly-terminated aqua of 10.5 grams. The form of this crystal is quite interesting, in that the growth of part of the crystal was arrested at points on each end, with the remainder of the crystal continuing to grow, so that the terminations are staggered at each end. 5.5 x 1.1 x 1 cm
