Description

The double terminated main crystal is 61 mm tall and 33 mm in diameter. It is resting on well arranged, sculptural Feldspat crystal. They show an intense yellow layer, but they are still very glossy – just a very thin layer, which makes the specimen very special and eye-catching. I mean you can easily clean it with chemistry and you will have lustrous white Feldspat, but in my taste it looks much better this way.  Only a few tiny Muscovite crystals are scattered on Feldspat. The Aquamarine crystals are lustrous and sharp terminated, they show sky-blue color. Inter grown to Aquamarine minor needles of Schorl. The specimen is developed as floater, Aquamarine is sharp and complete also backside. Very showy in various positions, no significant damages to report.
