Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Muscovite
Nagar (Nagir), Hunza Valley, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 7.9 x 5.8 x 4.7 cm
A whopper pale blue-grey crystal of aquamarine, translucent to transparent, leans out from a cluster of very attractive large floral muscovite blades. This fatty is over 3 centimeters across the termination (and around the same height). Smaller crystals surround the burst of muscovite. All the aquas have light grey-blue color, and high luster. This assemblage apparently broke off naturally in the pocket at some point, as the broken-off ends of the lower crystals appear to be naturally-healed, with tiny micro-faces.
