Ex. Herb Obodda
A splendid, gemmy pair of clear Aquamarines with good color and excellent form. The overall aesthetics of this piece are really just unique. The color ranges from a light blue near the termination to a more powder blue near the base. The gemminess and color reflect some of the better characteristics of Shigar Aquamarines. Both crystals are complete all around, transparently clean and clear. Even the bottom is, although slightly etched, terminated and complete! The shorter Aqua (4 cm) adds 3-dimensionality and balance to the tall one, making for a unique contrast and style. 65 grams of gem Aqua.
