Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.9 x 5.9 x 3.2 cm
Intensely colored, glassy and gemmy aquamarine crystals, to 5.25 cm in length, are associated with lustrous black schorl crystals, the largest of which is 3.5 cm in length and is also doubly-terminated. The aquas are more deeply colored blue and less gemmy for most of their length. The final approx. 1 cm of their length culminating at the termination is transparent and a lighter blue color but very much more gemmy than the body. A few aquas exhibit slight wear at the terminal edges, admittedly, hence a lower price is attached.
