Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Muscovite
Nagar (Nagir), Hunza Valley, Gilgit District, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.9 x 5.0 cm
Emplaced on and in a matrix of pearlescent muscovite, this cluster of glassy and gemmy pastel blue aquamarine crystals is highlighted by a doubly-terminated crystal, measuring just over 5 cm in length. That crystal runs through the core of the piece, and is displayed very centrally. Superb aesthetics for a classic Nagar aquamarine in this size. Weighs 184 grams.
