Ex. William (Bill) Larson

This doubly terminated and doubly tapered Aquamarine crystal from Myanmar (Burma) is quite unusual and reminiscent of those found at Mimoso do Sul in Brazil. It has a glassy luster with a pale blue color and is completely gem throughout. There are several crystals in tight parallel that form this composite crystal and some prism faces show faint striations parallel to its length while other faces have growth hillocks or features that are nearly perpendicular! Both ends of this beautiful floater crystal have perfect terminations at the end of their tapers! A geometrically intriguing piece that is quite aesthetic! 3.96 grams.
