This thumbnail specimen consists of a single, well-developed Aquamarine crystal. It is in excellent condition, showing only fresh damage where it was separated from its host and has excellent hexagonal prismatic form, with well-defined edges and very clean, smooth faces that possess the standard vitreous luster. Its color is a very pale blue with a hint of green, and it is transparent and very clear, containing one thin internal fracture that runs its length. It does cloud up a bit at its base, to which is attached a small amount of a white feldspar.
