Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Muscovite
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 4.0 x 4.0 cm
Nagar (Nagir), Hunza Valley, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan

This dramatic cabinet piece features an undamaged, pristine, fairly gemmy 7.5 x 4 x 4 cm aqua sitting smack in the middle of a well-trimmed matrix of muscovite. Remarkably, there are NO REPAIRS! It is a very impressive specimen that sits and displays nicely on its own without need of a base. Such large, unrepaired aquas have become noticeably scarcer of late, coming from Pakistan, for a number of reasons. This is an older piece I am quite happy to have and hang onto if need be. 13.3 x 10.4 x 10.4 cm
