Item Description

Absolutely superb Aquamarine nestled in a bed of Muscovite, on granite. The pale-blue Aqua is 1.7 cm tall and 1.7 cm across, and so water-clear that it might as well not be there when you look through it. The very definition of 'gemmy'. Perfect luster. The very minor dings and the fact that the granite has been sawed are slight detractions on a technical basis, but completely trivial to the overall visual affect of this beautiful crystal. Aesthetic. You really have to see this one.
