Ex. Dr. Ed David
An unusual specimen even amongst so many we have seen from this region in the last 20 years or so. This piece is complete all around, and has really nice, castle-like, sculptural aesthetics. The color on this one is unusual, being a more robust blue than is typical for these aqua/muscovite combination pieces! It has almost a surface sheen to it. This is a bonus...and makes it stand out to my eye among a crowd of other sharp hexagonal aquamarine crystals as a more unique specimen. It was last in the well-known collection of Dr Ed David, White House Science Advisor to our President Nixon. I bought it from him. Joe Budd photos.
