This specimen is mostly aquamarine, about half of which is in several nicely-shaped flat hexagonal crystals arranged in a "book". The largest of these crystals is visibly 15mm long and 4mm thick. While the "base" is ocluded enough as to appear white, the nice crystals are pale aqua in color, and quite transparent. There are some internal fractures that reflect a rainbow of colors. The aquamarine is accompanited by a number of dark-green elbaite tourmaline crystals.
