Double Terminated Aquamarine Crystal with Albite
Shigar, Skardu District, Gilgit, Pakistan
The greenish-blue variety of beryl, forming prismatic crystals on host mother rocks with other combination minerals and also single crystals. This elongated double-terminated Aquamarine crystal nicely formed perfect flat termination with needles like inclusions. It has good transparency as those interior inclusions give this crystal an interesting look and the white albite attached makes it a beautiful specimen. It has a more saturated sky blue color in the top termination at the C axis and a more greenish-blue body with vitreous wet luster. This is a beautiful looking piece as that white albite attached to it just makes this specimen for me.
