Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Mt Antero, Chaffee Co., Colorado, USA
Miniature, 3.4 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm
A fine, gemmy and lustrous aquamarine crystal from Mt. Antero, Colorado. The aquamarine is complete-all-around and pristine and has excellent blue color saturation. The crystal has textbook hexagonal form, but interestingly, is not a perfect hexagon. It also has a nicely modified pinacoidal termination. Ex. Harry Maines Collection.
