From the collection of my brother Brett of Kosnar Gem Co. Some of the very finest quality Aquamarine specimens come from the various pegmatites in the Pakistani Himalayas, especially the pieces from around Shigar. This locality has produced some of the most exciting Aquamarine specimens in recent years. This specimen features a GEM quality (nearly 100% water clear) very sharp, lustrous, blue color prismatic crystal of Aquamarine which is included with black crystals of what could be Schorl or Tantalite. The unusual pyramidal termination along with the second order prismatic modifications make for a unique “pencil”-shaped termination. No damage to speak of, and superb quality for the material. This piece came out around 1985, shortly after my brother was born in March. My Dad actually set this crystal aside for Brett since his birthstone is Aquamarine.
