English: Beryl (Var.: Aquamarine), Quartz (Var.: Smoky Quartz)
Locality: San Luis Potosí, Mexico (Locality at mindat.org)
I must say upfront that aquas from Mexico are rare to non –existent, making this matrix specimen unusually good. I DID NOT BELIEVE IT WHEN I FIRST SAW IT - BUT IT WAS EVAN'S, AND HE IS really an expert and longtime collector of Mexican goodies. I also verified with others - it is rare, legit, and probably among the very best of its kind. The large aqua measures about an inch atop the quartz, but is technically 4.5 cm in length (extending through the quartz as it does), nestled in a matrix of smoky quartz crystals to 1.5 cm in length. The aqua, is lustrous, translucent, sky blue, with a core of colorless goshenite beryl. The termination, while rough, is comprised of tiny incipient faces and thus terminated quite fully. It is actually doubly-terminated Note the phantom core! . Minor damage or contact does exist, but compared to the significance of the specimen, is unimportant. I was able to get this from Evan directly in a trade. labels from Evan and the Schlepp’s accompany this old timer. 5.1 x 4.0 x 2.8 cm
