Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Quartz, Feldspar Group
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 4.6 x 4.0 cm
Marvelous 2.3 cm Aquamarine crystal sitting in a bed of Feldspar along with a light Smoky Quartz crystal. The Aquamarine, in its own way, is spectacular. The luster is excellent, the termination gemmy and near-perfect, but what really makes this crystal is the unusually-deep blue color of the Aqua.
