Description:A wonderful association specimen featuring a WATER CLEAR, sharp, lustrous, prismatic, pale blue color hexagonal crystal of Aquamarine 1.5 cm aesthetically perched atop a matrix of fine quality, well-formed silvery Muscovite crystals on beautiful snow white Albite. Additionally, you can see a couple solitary, well-formed, sharp, pink, hexagonal crystals of Flourapatite measuring up to 7 mm on the piece. Very good quality overall with great aesthetics. This combination is not common to find from this locality, and is certainly worth picking up if you collect gem minerals or pegmatite minerals. A classic association specimen from Pakistan. Hard to photograph and better in person. Valued at $750 in the inventory.
