Description

This is a striking pair of aquamarine crystals with smaller crystals in association. The upper parts of the crystals are transparent, glassy, and underscore the “aqua” in aquamarine – a beautiful light aqua hue (and of course deeper, looking down into the crystals from their terminations). Lower on the piece (and on the edge of one termination on the left-hand-side crystal), these crystals exhibit interesting etching and recrystallization.  From the Gerald Panneton collection. In excellent condition (a couple of tiny nicks). This is a beautiful Erongo aqua!
