SOLD

Large interesting aquamarine crystal with hexagonal structure. The crystal stands out for its purity and top ending with smaller outcrops on the top of the crystal. This crystal ending resembles small shark teeth.

This aesthetic aquamarine sample was found by Pakistani miners in the middle of Karakoram Mountain in the steep Shigar Valley of North Kashmir. Miners travel to the mines a few days on foot through narrow paths and passes. They even live in the mountains during the season. The surrounding mountain peaks are frozen and snowy all year round due to their altitude.
