Schorl, Quartz (Var: Smoky Quartz)
Small Cabinet, 7.2 x 5.5 x 3.5 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos and Omaruru Districts, Erongo Region, Namibia
For sheer beauty and composition this is a superb schorl from Erongo. The interpenetrating Schorls are virtual twins - superb luster and form. The larger of the two, just by a bit, is 4.5 x 4.5 cm. Some small, gemmy Smoky Quartz crystals along the back and on the upper corner add a very nice accent to the Schorls. They are pristine, and fabulous. Ex. Charlie Key.
