This hexagonal prismatic Aquamarine crystal is in very good condition, having only 2 tiny conchoidal chips on its basal termination as far as damage is concerned. Its form is excellent, with well-defined edges and clean, smooth faces that show off its vitreous luster. The basal termination has small angled secondary faces that truncate it at each of the six corners and three of the edges. It appears to be nearly colorless, but one can see a pale blue-green hue when looking down its length thorough the basal face. It is transparent and quite clear, showing almost no visible inclusions without magnification, though there is a tiny, dark, needlelike crystal growing up from the base about 2 mm into the Aquamarine. I have placed it in a domed thimble box for display.
