Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Gilgit, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 3.4 x 1.8 x 1.1 cm
A doubly-terminated, top gem crystal of aquamarine, with a perfect complement of attached albite, from Pakistan. Rarely do you see a specimen such as this with both of the terminations intact -it is hard to tell how they got it out this way!
