This is a fine matrix piece of superb Aquamarines with gemmy luster and intense Erongo-blue color. They stand upright and stark against a matrix of partially etched Orthoclase, capped in places by highly fluorescent Hyalite Opal overgrowth. The Aquamarines are terrific - excellent color and luster, gemmy terminations, and the largest is 5 cm tall. The termination, on its right side, shows a secondary growth: a thin layer of slightly different colored aquamarine atop the main core. Ex. Charlie Key.
