Ex. Herb Obodda
Gorgeous, completely GEMMY, light blue, water-clear Aquamarine from Shengus. The luster is absolutely superb all the way around, and the partially-etched form has fantastic eye appeal. The crystal is festooned with blades of Albite and hexagonal crystals of Muscovite. There are even fine needles included within the Aqua, perhaps schorl (a type of Tourmaline). The piece looks good in the pics, and it is considerably better in person. This is a choice, aesthetic Aquamarine miniature that stands out!
