Description

Remarkably sizeable specimen of aquamarine from Alto Ligonha, Mozambique. This is a real classic, thick blue aquamarine collected in the late 70s, with some transparent, gem quality areas. The crystal is strongly stained by iron oxides, although this does not hide the good color of this specimen. The top termination is flat and it shows some typical corrosion patterns, possibly once covered by oxides.

An oldtimer, quite sought-after and very scarce on todays market.
