Beryl var. Aquamarine Crystal

A very beautiful large thumbnail specimen, of a light aqua blue Aquamarine crystal. The top of this beautiful gem is not the typical flat termination, but rather it has a less common and more complex termination with several facets, as depicted in the pictures. I have been holding off photographing the Aquamarines that I do have, simply because it is tricky to do them justice. But thanks to a newer digital camera, I was able to capture the nice subtle aqua color. And yet, it appears in the photos like the inclusions are right up against the sides of the crystal. Much better in person, the crystal is very clear, with some nice inclusions. This wonderful gemstone weighs in at 17 grams.

PLEASE NOTE: All of the photographs are not to scale. Some are enlarged to give you an accurate and an in depth view of all the details for you to see. Please always refer to specimen size in all my listings for the actual size, as this is what the final price is based on. Although picture colors can vary slightly from browsers to computers, I go to great lengths in photographing all mineral specimens with complete color accuracy, without any retouching whatsoever! My photo studio lighting consists of 4800K fluorescent lighting, which simulates the wavelengths of daylight. In some cases for a different effect I have utilized regular incandescent lighting to provide a different effect. If a specimen has knowingly been repaired, I will always disclose this information to you.
