T1507A Muscovite, Beryl var. Aquamarine
Huya Village, Mt. Xuebaoding, Sichuan Prov., China
4.7x 4.5x 4.1 cm

A tabular aquamarine specimen, with a small clump of muscovite crystals attached to the front.  The color on this piece is considerably better than most from the locality-- they are usually so pale that applying the term "aquamarine" probably has more to do with the general habit for describing beryls from Mt. Xuebaoding.

This is a slightly older piece, little good aquaamrine, scheelite or caissiterite comes out these days.  There is a chip on the very top, but it isn't the easiest thing to see.
