Beryl (Var: Aquamarine), Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz), Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 11.0 x 8.0 x 7.5 cm
An exceptional, artistic combination of Aquamarine, Smoky Quartz, and Schorl from the Erongo Mountains. Rarely do you find these three in combination, and when you do, they are hardly ever in this quality. The Aquamarines are superb: excellent deep to light blue color, gemmy terminations, and glassy luster (faces and terminations). The largest of the Smoky Quartzes is 6.6 cm, and doubly terminated. They are translucent and elegantly tapered. The Schorls add wonderful contrast, and they have excellent to slightly etched luster. Ex. Charlie Key.
