Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 3.5 x 3.5 x 2.8 cm
A cute and aesthetic Erongo toenail of a gemmy and lustrous aquamarine crystal, with a typically very gemmy termination, very nicely accented by a jackstraw cluster of lustrous, jet-black schorl crystals and resting on a bit of contrasting feldspar. This is essentially a damage-free, showy specimen.
