Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Feldspar Group
Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.8 x 3.0 x 2.0 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 pieces. This piece features a 2.8 cm razor sharp, highly lustrous, gem/gemmy deep blue color, doubly-terminated Aquamarine crystal with another slightly smaller sidecar crystal of equal quality aesthetically flaring off of some whitish Feldspar crystals forming a highly displayable and attractive matrix specimen from this prolific locality. A very good specimen for size, aesthetics, color contrast and associations. Much better color than the large majority of Pakistan Aqua's. 4.8 x 3.0 x 2.0cm
