Item Description

A gorgeous Aquamarine carving of a majestic whale shark bursting out of the ocean. Due to the fact that the piece is so gemmy, and three dimensional, it is very difficult to photograph, but take my word for it, the piece is SUPERB. It has the classic "aqua blue" color that one would expect from fine gem Aquamarine from Pakistan. The piece stands as displayed, and has great detail. At a retail value of just $5 per carat, this piece is priced at $1340, and for the detail, quality and color, it is well worth the $500 starting bid. It would make a fantastic gift for somebody during the upcoming holidays, or a great addition to your own gem carving collection.
