Item Description

A classic, beautiful, very gemmy, lustrous, soft greenish-blue color, slightly etched crystal of Aquamarine from the famous Jaqueto Mine. The piece is complete all the way around, and the only damage is at the base where it most likely was attached to the pocket wall. The piece was mined in the early 1970s, and comes from the collection of Richard Kosnar, who had a strong presence in Brazil bringing back a large quantity of pegmatite minerals during that time. The crystal would make a great addition to any gem crystal suite, especially since gem Aquas from Brazil are truly difficult to find on the market these days. Specimen weight is 12.55 carats.
