Thumbnail, 2.5 x 0.8 x 0.5 cm
As seen on TV (Prospectors show), this classic Colorado locality is known for its superb beautiful blue Aquamarine crystals. Most are just gem rough, and few are specimen-worthy. This single crystal is a sharp, lustrous, GEM/gemmy fine blue hexagonal crystal; a fine thumbnail specimen from one of the most well known pegmatite localities in the western U.S.
