Erongo Mountains, Namibia
Miniature, 5.0 x 1.4 x 0.8 cm
This is the largest complete, floater, gem single crystal that we were able to obtain that wasn't either repaired or embedded in matrix. It also is among the largest fine gem jeremejevites of record, so far as I know. It is a stunning, large crystal with intense color throughout, and a superb glassy luster. For the species, this has to be one of the largest known examples of quality - few from the original finds in Swakop were this size, and few of the new Erongo crystals reach this mass, as well. Small dark flecks are a possibly new species of the tourmaline group, in association.
