Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz), Orthoclase, Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 9.7 x 8.0 x 6.0 cm
A dramatic large piece featuring an excellent doubly-terminated 5.5-cm Aquamarine with very good color, superb luster, and gemmy terminations. The associated Orthoclase, Smoky Quartz, and Schorl also have well-developed crystals. Some of the Orthoclase has been weathered, making for a stark contrast to the sharper geometry of the aquamarine itself. Ex. Charlie Key Collection.
