This is a fascinating specimen of Aquamarine. If features two large opposing tabular crystals in addition to several more smaller tabs on matrix along with numerous aggregates of sharp small Muscovite crystals. The large tab on the right has a classic tabular formation whereas the tab on the right exhibits a more modified tab formation, seemingly numerous parallel, intersecting tabs ultimately forming one large tab. Really interesting. All of the Aqua crystals are transparent, pale blue, lustrous and sharp. Great contrast and balance – a real eye-catching piece. In excellent condition.
