Item Description

A sculptural and aesthetic small cabinet of two stout intersecting aquamarine crystals from a NEW find at Nagar, Pakistan. The rich ice-blue, very glassy, lustrous prisms are transparent to translucent. The impressive upright hexagonal aqua is 5.8 x 5.2 x 5.2 cm. The super cute, water-clear gem smokestack crystal is 1.6 cm tall and the scattered pearlescent muscovite are a fine complement and contrast. Complete all-around and essentially pristine. An artistic cluster of richly colored aquas from a new find. MUCH BETTER in person, as the glassiness, luster and gemminess made photography difficult. Valued at $1500-2000.
