Dimensions: 12.8 cm x 9.4 cm x 5.2 cm

12.8 x 9.4 x 5.2 cm. Emplaced on ivory colored feldspar are lustrous, black schorl crystals, to 4.0 cm in length. Perched on the schorl are several glassy and gemmy, intensely-colored, blue aquamarine crystals, to 6.1 cm in length. The largest schorl is rather equant in form and the largest aqua is doubly terminated, slicing right across that large schorl for maximal contrast not only of color, but of geometry as well. The center of the specimen is dominated by jewel-like, very gemmy, slender aquamarines on schorl, all atop the feldspar which you can see in some places underlying. From the new find of August 2009.
