Beryl var. Aquamarine from Shigar Valley, Baltistan, Pakistan


A very uncommon specimen of etched Aquamarine Beryl from Pakistan. I’ve seen many Aquamarine crystals from Pakistan exhibiting the typical hexagonal prism crystal habit, but this is one of only a few that I’ve ever seen with these “etched” looking crystal faces. Apparently this is due to hydrothermal solution in the Earth that comes in after crystal formation and dissolves away some of the regular crystal faces. In this case the result is a fantastic formation of spires and cavities! The color is very pleasing on this beautiful specimen. Guaranteed to amaze and delight!
