Morganite over Aquamarine with Tourmaline, Albite, Lepidolite
This monstrous old crystal, surely form the 1960s or perhaps the early 1970s, weighs in at 1500 grams ! It is an incredible showpiece GLOWING with juicy pink color: NOT the typical pale peachy or pink-orange morganite, but rather a rich, electric, sparkling PURE PINK hue like you almost never actually see. The glasssiness and transparency of the crysatl are phenomenal and you can literally look right into it. PICTURES DO NOT CONVEY the quality of the piece, though they are good shots and accurate nonethless/ Because of the size and shocking value of the color, it simply has to be seen in person. Within the morganite is a core of aquamarine, which you can clearly see through the overlaying pink. Also included inside are , at the edge of the aqua core, 3 sharp little purple lepidolite crystals! I have NEVER seen lepidolite so nicely included within a morganite as this. There is a small , shallow conchoidal dip in the top leading edge, but its not all that obvious visually. Of the 6 sides of the perfect hexagon, 4 are present and the lower two partially contacted, but again this does not detract visually. Certainly given the size and isplay impact a few small imperfections can be overlooked, especially at the price range since it is not priced to the moon.
