Post subject:  Long aquamarine in Matrix from East Georgia

Here is a aquamarine in quartz matrix, dug from the "junk hole mine" in Eastern Georgia, near the South Carolina line. We removed more of the quartz matrix, after taking these pics. The part covering the center portion, is what we took off. Just wanted to see if it was two separate crystals, or if it had twisted itself while it cooled, and solidified.(..see how it twist in the pic)
It's actually 2 different crystals, both growing almost out of the same spot.
