4.5 x 3.6 x 2.5 cm. A SHOWY, OLD-TIME miniature of a 3.6 cm, doubly terminated, pastel-green aquamarine crystal jauntily perched on quartz from Maine. The aqua is sharp, nicely translucent, undamaged, but does have one clean repair. A classic, old-timer from a less well-known Oxford County locality - Stow. Ex George Elling Collection.
