English: Beryl
Locality: Shengus (Shingus), Haramosh Mts., Skardu District, Baltistan, Northern Areas, Pakistan (Locality at mindat.org)
Size: cabinet, 14 x 12 x 7.5 cm (6 inches across)
Aquamarine on Feldspar
NO REPAIRS! NO DAMAGE! 360 DEGREES DISPLAY! nearly pristine! This is a stunning, 3-dimensional piece that is as close to a work of natural sculpture as you can ask for an aquamarine matrix piece. The large crystal is 8 cm tall (over 3 inches), 3 x 2.2 cm wide and thick. All crystals have GLASSY lustre and an intense color to them, partly reinforced by an internal "phantom crystal" within them, that goes up to the midpoint of each crystal. The top halves are, then, totally gemmy. I just cannot rave on about the piece enough. It is so rare to get such a nicely displayed spread of aquas, of this size, on contrasting matrix. What is more, the matrix is not just "rock" but rather is crystallized feldspar, as well. This is a specimen from a now-famous pocket found about a year and a half ago in late 2005, that was held back for trimming and cleaning. It was only just recently brought to market, in other words, though the pocket was found some time ago and now I have seen others from the find for sake of comparison. This one would be one of the very top specimens of the find. Comes with custom engraved lucite base, for easy display.
