Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Urals Region, Russia
Miniature, 3.8 x 2.1 x 1.2 cm
A CLASSIC, very OLD, tabular, gem aquamarine crystal from the Ural Mountains of Russia. This water-clear beauty has a nifty notch and is nicely striated on the back. There is an unusual diagonal prism face on the lower portion of the glassy front side, which really adds character. This is a very classic old-timer, which is easily over 100 years old. 14 grams. Ex. Violet Dawson Collection.
