A complex matrix of quartz, albite and muscovite are the hosts for glassy and gemmy, sky blue aquamarine crystals, to 5 cm in length:The largest aqua crystal is also doubly terminated and sits right in the middle of this beautiful and balanced cluster of species, all associated together. Very impressive aesthetics, and you can look at it from many angles. it has no repairs or notable damage. These few specimens in this pocket feature an unusual association in that the mica is sharper, more 3-D, and more colorful than most silvery mica from this location: mica is metallic and bright in color, and it is this combination against the blue and white, that will make this pocket most memorable - and these combination pieces, equally so, amidst a crowd of aquamarine specimens from Pakistan. Unique combinations make for more appeal in the long run!
