Beryl (Var: Goshenite), Quartz
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Cabinet, 9.6 x 3.4 x 3.4 cm
You have seen quartz from the Erongo Mountains, and beryls (blue beryls, or aquamarines, that is), but this is a very unusual specimen of colorless (the rarest color!) beryl on a LARGE, silky quartz crystal. The beryl compound crystal is lustrous, complete and terminated, and measures 1.5 cm. It has a very light tan color.
