Aquamarine crystals from northern Vietnam’s Thanh Hóa Province are some of the most beautiful and distinctive in the world due to their highly-saturated blue color and often superb quality and transparency. This 5 cm doubly-terminated aquamarine crystal is totally GEM with amazing, facet-quality clarity, a great pyramidal termination, and no damage. Just a sweet gem crystal from the collection of Herb Gregor (1929-2020) of Littleton, Colorado. Annette Slade photo.
