Doi Ty, Quy Chau District, Nghe An Province, Vietnam
This aquamarine crystal demonstrates the rich medium to dark blue color which has made Vietnam aquamarines a modern classic. This piece is darker toward the bottom and gradually lightens toward the top, complex termination. The piece is recrystallized on the darker end. There is a thin side car accessory crystal which seems to have affected the main crystals termination which separates into two distinct terminations at the very top, although it is clearly a single crystal throughout most of its length. The top terminations are beveled with small extra crystal faces and are at slightly different heights if you run a finger across the top. The piece is undamaged and shows a glassy luster.
