Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Dache (Dassu; Dasu; Haramosh-Dassu; Dacha), Haramosh Mts., Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 2.9 x 2.8 cm
A stunning burst of gem-quality aquamarine crystals, with just a bit of accenting matrix at the base. The large terminated central crystal measures 5.5 cm, and is as clear as glass: pure gem material, as pristine as aquamarine can get. It is surrounded by slender gem crystals, all of which are either terminated or pocket-healed. There is a bit of accenting muscovite amongst the aquas. Ex. Dave Stoudt collection.
