Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.1 x 3.5 x 2.2 cm
A very fine Erongo aquamarine specimen. For Erongo, it is really exceptional, for several reasons. First, the aquas are complete, terminated and undamaged. They are also extremely gemmy for this locality. And, where some of these specimens are just not all that aesthetic in the way the crystals and matrix come together, this one has the matrix as a perfect base and backdrop. The largest aqua measures 3.5 cm.
