The main crystal is 38mm tall and about 5mm in diameter. Alpine Aquamarine is generally very rare and this one is even free-standing. The crystal is repaired - an unrepaired freestanding Aquamarine crystal from the area simply doesn´t exist. The crystal is well terminated and shows light blue color. The faces are partly glossy. The assemble looks very aesthetic.
