Thumbnail, 2.5 x 0.8 x 0.5 cm
Mt. Antero, Chaffee County, Colorado, USA
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.
