Beryl var Aquamarine on Albite
Mt. Xuebaoding, Pingwu Co., Mianyang Pref.
Sichuan, China
7.1 x 5.1 x 4.1 CM (cabinet)
price: $330
Late Summer 2018

An esthetic and sharp edged piece. The Aquas are super clear, mid-range blue, (largest is 4.2 CM across,) tabular crystals consisting of two pinicoids and no prism faces. This is a less common form for Aqua at Pingwu (and very rare worldwide) normally there are prism faces present. The albite is well crystalized and some is quite gemmy too. The piece has a saw marks on base and side (from the collecting) not visible on display side. Displays very well as seen, but is better in person. There are some contacts and tiny edge chipping present that is not distracting yet keeps this from being a far more expensive specimen.
