A light blue-green, naturally corroded aquamarine crystal, having an aesthetic, foamy appearance. Transparent to translucent. Naturally etched beryls are much less common from Pakistan than from Brazil. This example has two saw marks across the base (perhaps some gem rough was removed?) but these do not detract when the sawn area is used as the base.
