Herderite, Schorl
Small Cabinet, 7.0 x 5.7 x 2.4 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
A fine coating of dozens upon dozens (maybe hundreds) of gemmy .3 cm Herderite crystals on a rich nest of intergrown Schorl crystals. The Herderites are gemmy, lustrous, striated, and have the faintest tint of light green. The Schorls are about .8 cm and highly lustrous. They are so sharp and shiny that they maintain their individuality. Ex. Charlie Key.
