An exceptionally clear and prismatic Beryl var. Aquamarine; a large single crystal point with a rare rounded point. The top termination of this Aquamarine is self-faceted and beveled and has been naturally gently rounded by the softening of natural dissolution, almost certainly occurring periodically during its formation. . The whole crystal exterior shows dissolution etching.
Very internally prismatic and refractive and a good colour too.
