Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Quartz
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 4.3 x 4.3 cm
A lovely and very unusual Aqua from the famous Erongo Region. These doubly terminated crystals, which range up to 5.1 cm, have excellent luster on all faces and terminations and are attached to gemmy smoky quartz. What is so attractive and rare is the pastel sky-blue color. I have not seen the likes of this before, especially from Erongo. The larger crystal even has a 2 mm gemmy cap to it. A wonderful specimen in its own right, and a killer rarity for this world-renowned locality. Ex. Charlie Key stock.
