Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.3 x 1.6 x 1.4 cm
A gemmy and lustrous aquamarine crystal with vivid blue color from recent finds in the Erongo Mountains. The termination area is much gemmier than the rest of the crystal, as is common with most Erongo aquamarines. This specimen is nicely highlighted by the tiny schorls embedded in the termination and the feldspar crystals at the base. A highly representative Erongo aquamarine with schorl.
