A dominant crystal measuring 6 x 4 x 3 cm stands adjacent to and atop a dramatic spray of muscovite blades, on this classic composition specimen from Nagar. It is the combination well known from the region, for decades, and yet an exceptional example of the classic style all the same. The piece is complete all around. Interestingly, the mica and the large aqua are themselves perched upon a knob of other aquamarine crystals, underlying. A common combination, but a very very choice representation of it (as proven by the fact that the owner kept it for a few decades in a fairly major case of beryls!).
