Thumbnail, 5.1 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm
Superb, water-clear gem crystal, as I think is conveyed in the pics quite nicely. Note also the perfect, complexly bevelled termination! There are interesting inclusions in the lower 1.5 cm or so (schorl?) that add to the visual value because they float so nicely and contrast with the blue aqua itself. weight = 23 grams 5.1 x 1.5 x 1.5 cm
