Aquamarine With Albite
Small Cabinet, 7.4 x 2.3 x 1.9 cm
near Jakarkot, Nepal
This crystal has DEEP blue color, really in a class above the normal Pakistani aquas and characteristic of the rarer Nepalese aquas when found. luster is extremely good, like glass, and the piece is better in person! It is also doubly-terminated, although one end is tapered and makes a more natural upper end (shown) than the other. The bottom termination, shown below, is complete although rough from regrowth in the pocket.
