Aquamarine, muscovite

/ $133

SOLD

Perfectly finished and clear aquamarine crystal of light blue color. The crystal of aquamarine is surrounded by the leaves of another mineral muscovite. Muscovite also grows through aquamarine, which means they crystallized together. Very clean and colored natural aquamarine crystal. Certainly suitable for further use e.g. production of fine jewelry.

This aesthetic aquamarine with muscovite 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.
