Beryl var. Aquamarine
Skardu, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan
Miniature, 4.2 x 3.5 x 2.7 cm
A sharp single crystal specimen of beryl showing gemmy blue atop a rich pink body, which is a color pattern we do not often see. This specimen, from a small find of early 2014, is a superb miniature. The blue zone is over 1 cm thick, and is no "thin line" of color from one angle, as sometimes can happen. This is obvious and dramatic color!
