Aquamarine has been used for centuries as a catalyst for strength, navigation, inspiration and as a gemstone. It is well known for its hardness, deep blue to green color and hexagon crystal shape. This specimen is a lovely example showcasing a transparent gem aquamarine crystal on some aesthetic matrix of platy muscovite and albite feldspar. The overall effect of this specimen is artistic, with great contrast between color, clarity and texture. The aqua crystal is gem clear, and while incomplete, this piece is sure to captivate all those that see it.
