Ilmenite, Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 4.5 x 4.0 x 2.0 cm
A very sharp, fine, beautiful (all things considered) 4.5 x 4 x 2 cm ilmenite crystal nestled in smoky quartz matrix! This is a very attractive piece, from the recent find of last year. The major crystal is undamaged, atop, though it has some rough spots on the bottom and back side. Its better in person and nicely 3-dimensional. 5.2 x 5.0 x 4.3 cm
