Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Albite
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.2 x 5.0 x 2.5 cm
Gemmy and lustrous aquamarine crystals are artfully set, jackstraw-fashion, on both sides of the sculptural box-work matrix of casted feldspar. The striking, large, "sentinel" aquamarine at the top is 1.7 cm. A few of the smaller aquamarines are doubly terminated. The aquamarines are particularly gemmy.
