Muscovite, Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.4 x 5.6 x 3.0 cm
An uncommon and very attractive specimen of vivid yellow Muscovite crystals growing on crystals of Schorl. The .5 cm Muscovites have luster that range from velvety to classic adamantine, and their growth along the Schorl crystals (which range up to 2.5 cm) is complete-all-around. Many of the tips of the Schorls have been broken off, but that actually allows you to see the geometry of the growth. An unusual, and aesthetic, piece. Ex. Charlie Key.
