Description

Old, well-defined prismatic crystal of aquamarine from Espírito Santo, a less common locality for acquamarine in Brazil. The faces of the prism show abundant etching at the base but turn smooth to the top, where the crystal is transparent and has a good light blue colour. The termination is very rich in pyramidal faces, where the common flat pinacoidal face is not present. Hard to see nowadays.

Ex. Lucien Jusgen collection, who bought on December 15, 1983.
