Item Description

When it comes to Aquamarine, Pakistan is the most productive country for specimens in the last 20 years. Some of the very finest quality Aquamarine specimens come from the various pegmatites in the Paki Himalayas, including the pieces from the famous Nagar region. This locality has produced some of the most exciting Aquamarine specimens in recent years. This piece features a pair of rather large, sharp, glassy, GEM/gemmy, soft blue color, thick, doubly-terminated prismatic crystals of Aquamarine which are associated with white prismatic Quartz crystals and minor silvery Muscovite. The piece can be displayed from several angles, and is certainly one of the larger Aqumarine crystals from the locality that I have offered. A very attractive gem crystal specimen with good color, size and quality from this famous Pakistani pegmatite locality. Valued at $3000-$3500
