Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.0 x 3.6 x 3.4 cm
An incredible and robust Aquamarine from the Erongo Region of Namibia. This amazing crystal is 4.1 cm tall and 3.6 cm across. The color is excellent, the luster on the termination is superb, and the upper 1.6 cm of the crystal is almost perfectly gemmy (unusual for the locale). The attached small (up to .3 cm) Schorls are equally well-formed and lustrous. At 111 grams, this is a stunning miniature. Ex. Charlie Key.
