From the new find of August 2009. Perched aesthetically on crystallized, white feldspar is a dramatic, upright 4.0 cm aquamarine. It is of the highest quality: glassy luster, gemmy terminations and a rich blue color. However, the termination has a large chip, shallow (a few mm at most) but visible, on half of the basal plane of the termination. Nestled in a vug are three slender, gemmy aquamarines that are doubly terminated, as an accent elsewhere on the piece.
