CRYSTAL CLEAR AQUAMARINE
A beautiful, natural Crystal Clear Aquamarine Crystal Specimen. This is a specimen with gemmy, well formed and very clear Aquamarine. The Crystal is aesthetic and beautiful. These are getting harder to come by and a piece like this would grace any mineral or gem collection. When I took the photos there was a halo around the sun and a 360 degree rainbow in the sky with low thin cloud.
4.2cm x 0.8cm x 0.5cm, 3.75g.
Beryllium Aluminum Silicate.
Beryl is one of the most important gem minerals. Beryl is colorless in pure form; it is the many different impurities that give beryl its varied coloration. Without these splendid color varieties, beryl would be a rather ordinary gemstone with only average fire and brilliance. Emerald is the green variety and Aquamarine is the blue variety of beryl. Other varieties are Heliodor (yellow), Morganite (pink) and Goshenite (clear).
