At the base (about 1 cm) the Beryll is colorless, fuzzy and very strong etched. So it nearly looks like matrix – in fact the crystal is a flaoter. The rest of the crystal is sky-blue, very gemmy and of high clarity. It shows amazing texture caused by etching, but still highly lustrous all around (I show back and front-side, but hard to decide which side is more attractive). Although it is etched you still can see the origin habit of Aquamarine very well. End pointed, perfect quality, undamaged, no internal cracks.
