Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.2 x 4.5 x 1.8 cm
Yet another combo from Erongo, showing yet another variation on the theme of aqua and schorl that is well-known from this locality. This is a top-notch specimen from a recent find of BI-COLORED aquamarine crystals, with colorless bottoms and gemmy blue-green terminations! In this case, the crystals sit on a bed of contrasting tiny, acicular schorl crystals that create a perfect setting.
