ID: CC18972
A single, off-matrix Beryl crystal, variety Aquamarine, from the Gilgit District in Pakistan.  The crystal is a delicate cornflower-blue and roughly divides into a semi-transparent, slightly cloudy lower section (3.5 cm tall) and a transparent, partly gemmy upper 3 cm to the flat pinacoid termination.  Although a single crystal, it bifurcates to form two joined hexagonal prisms with one common face.  Some conchoidal nicks are present on and around the termination, but these are not readily apparent.
