Item Description

Striking combination piece from Nagar, absolutely classic for older finds here, with an attractive Aquamarine crystal nested among a forest of well-formed, hexagonal 2.4 cm Muscovite crystals. The Aqua itself is 4.3 cm tall with a light blue color that is almost spectral in nature, as the crystal goes from a gemmy termination to a transluscent prism. It is lustrous, and the textured termination is ringed by beveled edges, a nice effect in and of itself. But really, this is one of those times you just need to sit back and admire the piece as you let it do the talking. It is a stunning specimen for the size range. valued $2500-3500
