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 more included toward the bottom and gradually increases to very gemmy toward the top, complex termination. The piece is recrystallized on the darker end with a contact on one side. Although it is clearly a single crystal throughout much of its length, the crystal has split into two different terminations at the top which are at different heights. The top terminations are flat with tiny beveled extra crystal faces. The piece is undamaged and shows a glassy luster.
