RM653   Beryl (aquamarine) with muscovite and albite

Dasso, Shigar Valley, Skardu, Gilgit, Baltistan, Pakistan

Excellent aquamarine crystal showing a well developed prism and a very interesting termination, not very common for the species. We can see at the top, the sharp faces of the first order dipyramid, with one isolated face (curious!) of a third order dipyramid. Moreover, the apex is truncated by the pinacoid. It has a slight bluish tone, near colorless. Transparence and brilliance are very good. On the faces of the prism some groups of muscovite and albite crystals have grown. It is very vertically disposed on a white matrix of albite with muscovite, with a small another aquamarine. A gem on matrix.
