Aquamarine With Schorl
Cabinet, 9.8 x 7.7 x 5.3 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
This specimen features two very blue crystals, 5.5 and 3.5 cm, perched on schorl matrix. The crossbar appearance of the doubly-terminated larger crystal (1.5 cm width), set against the black schorl, is striking and unusual. Note there is a hairline fracture near the termination, but no repair. This is a very 3-dimensional specimen. The aquamarines have the glassy luster this pocket will be known for and are super gemmy at their tips.
