Item Description

A 3.9 cm, water-clear, gem aquamarine crystal with light blue color and a bit of yellow, interior tinting is aesthetically set on a sliver of pearlescent muscovite blades from recent finds at Mt. Xuebaoding. The tabular aqua has textbook, hexagonal form and several faces have interesting, preferential etching. The aqua is pristine. Highly representative and showy combination material from this noted locale. The piece displays beautifully without aid. MUCH, MUCH BETTER IN PERSON!!
