Description

Here is a very special piece of aquamarine from the classic areas!The piece is a floater of doubly terminated aquamarine crystal with light blue color covered by albite crystals.It has a multiface termination on both ends,not the standard pinacoid!It also has geometric patterns on the faces!Now, if you are not impressed yet, check the hollow crystal that ends to the bottom termination!The crystal has missing face on the display face and a hole on the bottom!One by one,maybe they are not very uncommon characteristics,but all together on this perfect visually undamaged piece I say this is something you don't see every day!
