Beryl var. Aquamarine with Microcline and Goethite
Erongo Mountains, Karibib, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 5.9 x 5.5 x 5.0 cm

This is a very balanced cluster of gemmy Aquamarine crystals from the Erongo Mountains. Several glassy, transparent, sky-blue Aquamarine crystals to 5cm are set in an attractive arrangement on contrasting white Microcline Feldspar. Five larger transparent to translucent crystals are interconnected by numerous smaller, lovely Aquamarine crystals and there are even clusters of tiny Aquamarines at the base of the large crystal. Local small ocherous patches of Goethite are present for accent.
