The display face of a feldspar matrix is richly covered by glassy, light blue, and distinctly striated aquamarine crystals. These crystals reach 1.4 cm in length and most are terminated. Some are etched and/or show skeletal, barrel growth. Peppered with small, black tourmaline crystals (most likely schorl, but the precise tourmaline species cannot be determined by sight alone). No damage. Displays nicely on its acrylic support stand, from which it is easily removed if desired.
