Afghanistan
Miniature - 3.2 x 1.6 x 1.3 cm (1.3 x 0.6 x 0.5 inches)

A very transparent and gemmy, light blue aquamarine crystal with partially beveled termination. Internal vertical growth features (tubes) rise from the base (making this part somewhat veiled) but dissipate near the top, allowing the last 40% towards the termination to be water clear. The vertical faces are quite glassy and smooth, save for a few vertical striations (the same growth features mentioned above). Sits well for display as shown without needing a stand. An excellent specimen for the price, which would be twice as much with more precise locality information.
