Beverly Hills, CA, USALive Auction
This fine single crystal of aquamarine glows with the lovely soft blue-green color that provides its name: "water of the sea". A beautiful piece in itself, it is enlivened by a splay of metallic blade-like mica crystals at one side, dramatically contrasting in form, delicately complementary in tone. A good collector's piece, it stands 2 5/8 high on a perspex base.
