Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.0 x 3.1 cm
A fine and unique cluster of gemmy and lustrous aquamarine crystals with strange, yellow terminations from a small Fall 2008 find in the Erongo Mountains. No one knows what causes the yellow color. The crystals have excellent gemminess and color and some of the crystals are doubly terminated. The largest doubly terminated crystal is 3.7 cm.
