A complete-all-around, duet of perfect, gemmy, statuesque Aquamarine crystals from Pakistan with an unusually beautiful stepped termination! The sharp floating red spessartine garnets within make for a highly unusual look! They are sharp, complete, and somehow grew as floaters enclosed within! The crystals are in perfect parallel growth with one slightly taller than the other and third, barely noticeable one, in the middle. The Aquas are more turbid internally at the base, and more gemmy in the upper half. The piece is glassy with nicely formed prism faces that are just slightly complicated due to the three crystals being in parallel growth that adds character. The Aquas are super glassy, free of damage, complete, with sharp edges and perfect pinacoid terminations and only contacted at the base where it was removed from the pocket. There is a portion of a jet-black Schorl crystal at the base that must have been part of its larger matrix.
