Beryl var. Aquamarine
Minas Gerais, Brazil
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 1.2 x 1.1 cm

This slender, prismatic aqua crystal is lustrous and gemmy with a light seafoam-green-blue color characteristic of old finds. It is perhaps from Marambaia (old collection material, and so it is hard to confirm). The prism faces exhibit a silky luster while the termination is glassy and gemmy. The mass is 23 grams. Unusual old classic!
