Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.5 x 3.9 x 3.5 cm
A very fine cluster of gemmy, well-formed Hydroxylherderites, growing on Schorl. The Hydroxylherderites, rare for the Erongos, have excellent luster and attractive striations on many of the crystal faces. The crystals average about .3 cm in size, though the largest is about .5 cm. A very fine specimen of this rare locality piece. Ex. Charlie Key.
