Schorl, Opal (Var: Opal-An)
Miniature, 4.0 x 4.0 x 2.4 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
An aesthetic and unusual cluster of prismatic Schorl crystals, with some of the Schorls capped by highly fluorescent Hyalite Opal. The Schorl crystals are slender and have superb luster. You do not often see this particular habit in such a well-defined cluster, with equally good and large (over 2 cm) crystals. Ex. Charlie Key.
