Ex. William (Bill) Larson

A perfectly formed, pale blue Aquamarine thumbnail from the pegmatites of the Mogok Valley in Myanmar (Burma). This little cutie has glassy and sharply formed prism faces with very faint very faint vertical striations and the crystal is capped by a complex pyramidal termination that is almost like a geodesic dome in appearance and it's incredibly reflective and lustrous. There isn't a single flaw in this gem Aqua, only the contact at the bottom and a couple of super tiny imperfections on one edge. A beautiful Burmese Aquamarine thumbnail! 3.09 grams.
