Beryl (Var: Heliodor), Beryl (Var: Aquamarine)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 4.8 x 4.0 cm
An aesthetic cluster of rare, heliodor-tipped aquamarine crystals from a recent one-time find in the Erongo Mountains. Each of the gemmy and lustrous crystals have good color, become gemmier toward their terminations, and have a distinctive 2 mm zone of yellow-green at their terminations. The large crystal is 4.4 cm. We have not seen an Erongo aqua with green tips, such as this, in the years of mining there.
