Large Doubly Terminated Aquamarine Crystal Atop Muscovite!

Large doubly terminated Aquamarine crystal atop Muscovite!

I think the photo speaks for itself! The Aquamarine crystal is a deep sky blue with super glassy surfaces and perfect terminations at both ends. It measures 6.7 cm in length with two smaller crystals attached to the backside which bring the total length to 7.5 cm. The matrix changes from large Muscovite blades on the backside to smaller blades of Muscovite on the front display side. The specimen could be displayed well from either side but this is the presentation that I prefer. I might also point out that the tips of the Aqua are gemmy and clear and transparent to the matrix.
