Doi Ty, Quy Chau District, Nghe An Province, Vietnam
Vietnamese aquamarines are famous for their naturally rich blue colors. This specimen is doubly terminated with one end showing a frosted, white cap. The other end is a basal pinacoid that is flat and shows and interesting contact where another crystal formed across it. The body of the crystal shows a medium to dark blue color which really glows with lighting along its length. It is glossy, sharply hexagonal, and has a great internal clarity. This is a great little jewel of a modern-day classic.
