Jaqueto Mine, Guaratingo, Bahia, Brazil
A gem crystal of exceptionally colored aquamarine from the legendary Jaqueto find of the 1980s. This piece demonstrates fine circumferential etching in the famous “Jaqueto style.” It has gem facet grade clarity through most of the crystal, and tremendous color. Lighting from the top or bottom of the crystal creates an otherworldly glow that is a perfect teal in certain lights while a neon green in other lighting specifications. It is 12 cm tall and truly demands attention in a case. These are rarely offered for sale today and this piece is perfect, without damage.
