KP03 Aquamarine, Beryl var. Aquamarine
Chamachu, Skardu, Northern Areas, Pakistan
12.0x 9.8x 9.8 cm
A beautiful cabinet specimen with two terminated, gemmy aquamarine crystals on matrix. Both crystals have lightly etched surfaces, and a light blue color.
The main crystal stands straight out of its matrix, finding a specimen where the crystals are positioned like this is not as easy as you might think: mining involves lots of dynamite, so more often than not the crystals wind up separated from their matrix...
This is the best piece from the pocket.
