Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas), Shigar Valley, Skardu District, Baltistan, Pakistan
A gemmy light blue aquamarine shows an intricately formed termination with longer needles protruding from it. This rests with a spray of detailed star mica that shows its platy, leaflet - like nature in high relief. Quartz crystals also combine with the piece on its feldspar matrix which makes a very attractive arrangement. The aquamarine is damage free and the entire specimen is superbly aesthetic.
