Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl, Quartz
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.7 x 3.4 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
A nicely-balanced combo of three Erongo Mountain minerals - it is unusual to see a nice quartz crystal combined with the aqua and schorl you often see together from this locality, however. The aqua is far from world-class, and in general, of course, Erongo specimens are not of the caliber of Brazilian or Pakistani ones, but the combination here is quite nice. The aqua IS terminated, though with a natural contact and some mineral attachment. The schorl is terminated as well.
