Aquamarine with Schorl Inclusions - Shengus, Pakistan
6 x 4 x 3 cm
This is a fascinating specimen. Not your traditional Aqua, this specimen has inclusions of Schorl Tourmaline. You'll notice the termination shows that the Tourmaline actually interrupted the growth of the Aqua. The Schorl was likely present prior to the Aquamarine which the presence of the Schorl caused the Aqua to wash out during the formation and left these disjointed "cuts" in the crystal. This is a great piece for the one who appreciates a unique geology.
