Item Description

What a gorgeous, highly aesthetic and fine quality association specimen from the lesser known locality at Bulochi in Pakistan. This piece features a pair of a very sharp, highly lustrous, GEM QUALITY, very pale blue color, prismatic hexagonal crystals of Aquamarine measuring up to 1.2 cm long, which are dramatically flaring out of excellent, blocky, white Albite crystals on a thin layer of Muscovite Mica matrix. I love the tiny but distinct pyramidal modifications on the termination of the larger Aquamarine crystals. No damage and just gorgeous. This is one of my favorite pieces in this auction. Priced at $1,400 retail.
From the collection of Shields Flynn.
