Aquamarine
Minas Gerais, Brazil

With all the blue sticks coming from Pakistan, it can be hard to believe that Brazil was the premier source for aquamarine for many years (before my time!). Still, they are distinctive, many having more complex terminations than their Pakistani cousins. This piece has some etching on the outside and a little kaolin clay caught inside the crystal. It measures 6 x 1.1 x 0.9 cm and had an exceptionally complex terminations, with many faces, that are now well rounded from etching. A nice piece at a good price.
