Shigar Valley, Baltistan, Pakistan
5.3 x 5.2 x 4.1 cm.
A superb specimen of GEMMY, rich blue Aquamarine Beryl from the Shigar Valley in Pakistan. It features a very lustrous, water-clear Aquamarine crystal artfully positioned in a nicely contrasting matrix of white Albite Feldspar. A few specks of shiny Muscovite add a nice textural contrast. The Aquamarine crystal exhibits a glassy luster and is much clearer and more richly colored than the photos suggest. Sawn on the backside to remove excess matrix. All in all, a nicely balanced and quite colorful composition.
