Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 8.4 x 7.3 x 5.2 cm
This combo specimen features at least 15 intensely colored, glassy and gemmy aquamarine crystals, to 3.0 cm in length. All major ones except one crystal are terminated, though a few minor crystals are not. Several lustrous, black, schorl crystals, to 2.0 cm in length, are closely associated with the aquas. The aqua crystals are more deeply colored blue but less gemmy for most of their length.The last 1 cm including the terminal faces are more glassy and gemmy, quite remarkable for the locale. Only the slightest wear to some crystal edges can be seen, however the overall effect of this specimen can not be diminished by it. It is a very 3-dimensional, radial cluster, with lots of appeal especially in this price range, I think
