Description:
This stunning, matrix of aquamarine specimen is from the unique find of several years ago which produced the best flashy Aqua on a super shiny and snow white Albite . It is not just a “bflashy aqua” with size and color…like others from this find, it has a unique 3-dimensionality to it. The piece is dramatic, for the way the starkly contrasting crystallized albite matrix serves as host to a the gemmy, glassy, unusually isolated and upright crystal. The aquamarines from this find are very blue and gemmy, with internal phantoms of medium opacity running up halfway through the larger crystals. This is a characteristic of this now-infamous pocket found in late 2005 and brought to market in 2006, a pocket that I think will stand the test of time for, again, its uniqueness in three factors: crystal quality and color; the unusual internal phantoms; matrix aesthetics; and the fact that the albite matrix is crystallized nicely. So many aquas occur on boring ol’ rock matrix…to get them to stick on crystallized matrix, and standing upright, has always been a challenge for Mother Nature. I acquired the specimen few years ago from a miner who he kept with him for a joy since the day one he extracted it , he got it direct, and passed on to me fairly, and it is, I truly believe, priced for the market in such quality , perfection without any damage no repairs and in such super super aesthetics.
