Schorl, Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 7.5 x 5.6 x 2.8 cm
Lustrous and very attractive set of four Schorl crystals set in a nest of very fine light smoky quartz crystals. The three largest crystals, which range up to 2.3 cm, are undamaged from the mining process save for a few minor dings along the edges. Most of the smokies are undamaged. The luster on the Schorl is fantastic, and the overall piece is exceptional.
