This is a very irregular specimen of aquamarine, possibly it filled an irregular cavity in the original host rock (which has been completely removed). The only indications of crystal form are two flat faces that meet at a 120 degree angle (correct for aquamarine), and a number of small flat segments which meet at the same angle. The color is rather pale, and the clarity is excellent. There are a number of caves into the crystal, one of these has a slightly rusty stain.
