Large Cabinet, 18.4 x 13.2 x 7.6 cm
From the collection of Jack Halpern, a BIG, MAJOR specimen of gem aquamarine crystals, along with a single gem apatite, on a bed of bladed muscovite. The aquamarines are a very light grey-blue. The largest measures 3 cm in length and over 2 cm across the termination. The apatite, a pretty pinky-salmon color, measures 2 cm across the termination. All the crystals are gemmy, and all are in fine condition! Exchanged to me from Jack Halpern.
