Medina Pegmatite Field, Pedra Azul Pegmatite District, Minas Gerais, Brazil
At just over 6 grams and 2.8 cm tall, this thumbnail is a tremendous thumbnail of the legendary Medina aquamarine find of 1990. While small in size, it has all the characteristics of its bigger siblings- gemmy termination, sculptural cathedral etching, and great c-axis color glow. It even has the tiny surface pitting seen on the prism crystal faces. It is doubly terminated with a gem top termination. The bottom is highly etched with tiny negative channels creating opacity. A pretty and top notch thumbnail that is from a famous locality not often offered in any size.
