Item Description

A classic and beautiful Nagar combo piece, with excellent color contrast! One side of this specimen hosts a cluster of generally gemmy and lustrous aquamarines with areas of embeded muscovite. Some faces have complicated hexagonal patterns that may be etching or areas where small muscovite xtals disolved away before aquamarine growth finished. And yet, some faces of the aqua crystals are mirror smooth, in contrast. A very interesting specimen, better in person. Valued $900-1250. 450 grams
