T1501 Beryl var. Aquamarine
Shigar Valley, Baltistan Pakistan
7.0x 4.0x 3.3 cm

A wonderfully transparent gem crystal of aquamarine, displaying good color and a dramatically etched termination, along with lightly etched lateral faces.  The bottom of the crystal has an etched termination, and the crystal has been etched into two separate pieces, approximately 1.5 cm from the bottom.  The bottom piece is held by the albite matrix, though has just enough clearance to move up and down just slightly.

All in all, it makes for a very beautiful and slightly more unusual Shigar aquamarine.
