Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl, Opal (Var: Opal-An)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.6 x 4.8 x 3.6 cm
A superb Aquamarine/Schorl combination specimen from the Erongo Mountains. The Schorls, for the most part, are lustrous and sharp. The triangular section attached to the large Aquamarine, is just that - a section. But it adds an aesthetic complement by its shape, position, and healed surfaces. The main Aquamarine, 3.2 x 2.3 cm, is amazing. It is almost completely gemmy, which, for its size, is exceptional. The color is a deeper blue than you normally find from Erongo, and the crystal faces are highly lustrous with a 'watery' texture that reminds one of a lustrous Heliodor/Aquamarine that has been slightly etched. The termination is perfect, and even includes small, penetrating Schorls. Ex. Charlie Key.
