Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas), Pakistan
Two doubly terminated aquamarines are gem clear. Showing with interesting milky white inclusions which form perfect rings circling the edge of the piece. The luster is high which allows these rings to be easily seen. The top termination is complex – it has bevels (extra dipyramidal crystal faces) and a complex spiculation resulting from tiny parallel growth on the top. The bottom is recrystallized. It is interesting that the sidecar has similar features to the larger crystal – including the ring-like inclusions.
