Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.3 x 6.5 x 5.0 cm
Fine combination piece of super-lustrous Schorl along with very lustrous and gemmy Aquas. The Aquas vary in quality, but the two largest (up to 1.5 x 1.2 cm) have nice color, mirror-like luster, and are at least 50% gemmy. The Schorls are beautiful. The luster is superb, and the uneven growth in a few places actually adds a nice contrast to the crystals, the largest of which is 5 cm and blocky in habit.
