Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl
Erongo Region, Namibia
Thumbnail, 6.4 x 5.0 x 3.7 cm
Some of the best contemporary Aquamarine specimens are those from Erongo. Not only is the quality superb on many of these Aqua specimens, but the associations can make for some really stellar specimens. This piece features a 2.5 cm razor sharp, highly lustrous, gem/gemmy deep blue color Aquamarine crystal aesthetically flaring out of the center of two relatively thick, lustrous, doubly-terminated black Schorl crystals plus some whitish Feldspar crystals on the reverse side of the specimen forming a highly displayable and attractive combination specimen from this prolific locality. One end of the Schorl crystals is comprised of dozens of tiny terminations. A very good specimen for size, aesthetics, color contrast and associations. 6.4 x 5.0 x 3.7cm
