Beryl Var. Aquamarine
Cabinet, 15.0 x 11.0 x 7.5 cm
Shigar Valley, Skardu, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan

The photos speak for themselves here. This is a WORLD CLASS level aquamarine of the most intense color seen from this part of the world. It is more blue than 99.99 % of all other aquas and has to rank among the top examples of the species from these modern finds, in my opinion. It practically radiates color, and has a sharp and robust hexagonal form. And as good as the photos are, in person it has an even higher luster and a more intense and bright gemminess to the eye than the camera sees. It is visible from across a room.
