Aquamarine "The Prince of India"
Karur, Tamilnadu, India
Large Cabinet, 18.3 x 7.7 x 6.0 cm
An important Aquamarine from Southern India, found in the late 1990's in a single unique pocket (along with a second, larger but more crude crystal named "The Emperor)." This piece is the sharpest, gemmiest crystal of the pocket, at 1670 grams. The color stands out dramatically from all other Aquamarines and makes these the most important Aquamarine crystals ever found on the continent of Asia.
