Here is an unusal combo from Pakistan. We have fat aquamarine crytal and an off-white topaz crystal growing on the top-left rim. The aquamarine is extremely lustrous and gemmy, and it has some rather unusual color variations in it. You can see in the photos that there are vertical striations of a darker blue color, so the aqua alone is unique, but this combo is fantastic. The topaz crystal is an off-white color with just a hint of the typical topaz orange color. For the most part it is white, however.
The condition is outstanding with no chips on the front edges of the aqua, a shiny termination on top, and same with the topaz. The backside once sheared off of the original crystal, and there may be some new growth on the exposed side. The specimen comes on a custom base.
