Well-crystallized Aquamarine is not common from Madagascar in my experience, and this wonderful prismatic crystal is not only well-formed, but has a gorgeous rich blue color. It’s not washed out or “grey” in appearance, but rather a vibrant sky blue. It may be difficult to see in the photos, but the termination is completely transparent, even though it has a slightly etched appearance. Conversely, the prism faces are quite smooth and glassy. No real damage that I can see, and it’s just better than the majority of the Aquamarines I’ve seen from Madagascar, which often are opaque, dull, and not nearly as well-crystallized as this one.
