Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 3.0 x 2.0 cm
Two DOUBLY-TERMINATED and LARGE crystals of aquamarine from the Erongo Mountains in Namibia, cemented together and accented by minor matrix. As you know, Erongo aquas should not be compared to Pakistani or Brazilian ones for gemminess; they are a whole different animal. So, for Erongo, these have good gemminess and are quite lustrous as well. They are exceptional in size for this locality - the longer one a full 6 cm.
