Beryl var. Aquamarine

Beryl var. Aquamarine

The Medina Pegmatite Field has produced some of the finest aquamarines from Brazil and, by extension, the world. This particular specimen would stand up to any others from the area in terms of overall quality and aesthetics. Formerly in the Steve Smale and Jack Halpern collections, it is perfectly gemmy and is a beautiful rich blue colour. One termination is a simple pinacoid, below which the prism is increasingly etched down to the opposing terminus which has been etched away to the point that it resembles nothing more nor less than a group of sharp icicles hanging from the bottom of the crystal.
