Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Gilgit, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 2.8 x 2.1 cm
Two fine aquamarine crystals have grown side-by-side, attractively zoned with frosty bottoms and gem-clear tops. Both are terminated, but each termination has a bit of very shallow damage. The bottom is actually naturally-healed, the two crystals having broken off in the pocket and then healed at the break, so this is technically a rare doubly-terminated floater. Weighs 72 grams.
