Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Feldspar Group
Gilgit, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 3.7 x 2.2 x 1.5 cm
A fantastic mini of aqua on matrix! The aquamarine is PRISTINE, super-gemmy, complete and undamaged all around and with a perfect termination. It has been trimmed out with just enough matrix to accent it and act as a natural base; it projects out at a very pleasing 45 degree angle. It is clear as glass, so much so that you can read through it with no distortion. There are some tiny needles of schorl included inside towards the bottom.
