This would be a great aquamarine for Mount Xuebaoding, consisting of a "floater" cluster of lustrous light blue tabular crystals to 4.5 cm. What makes it special though is the association of well-formed crystals of the very rare tin mineral Kesterite, with a thin coating of mushistonite. A specimen that is both aesthetic as well as rare, this is a fine piece for this important Chinese locale.
