ID: CC19363
This completely stunning gemmy sky-blue Aquamarine crystal emerges from a rugged snow-white matrix of Albite from Gilgit in Pakistan, a world-class location for magnificent gem minerals.  Standing 5.8 cm tall and approximately 1.2 x 1.0 cm in section, the Aquamarine crystal can be described as either a single crystal displaying vertical bifurcation or as two crystals in parallel growth.  Both crystals are semi-transparent light sky-blue to white with wispy internal crazing up to 1.2 cm from the flat termination, with the final 1.2 cm section being completely gemmy and water-clear.  A single thin and gemmy 1 cm tall Aquamarine crystal stands on the matrix close the main crystal.  Set in a showcase, this Aquamarine, a variety of Beryl, will look magnificent.
