Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Quy Chau (Ke Bon; Phu Qui Chau) District, Nghe An (Nghe Tinh) Province, Vietnam
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm
A beautiful blue, gemmy, etched and striated aquamarine crystal from Vietnam. It has an interesting, bubbly termination that shows signs of having once broken and then amazingly started to grow again. Very uncommon in this vivid color! This is the single largest crystal in a small lot of such beauties we got from a mining engineer who was over there. It is quite important for the locality, for the size, even if a little crude by Pakistani standards these days. 8.0 x 2.7 x 2.2 cm
