Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 5.5 x 5.4 x 4.0 cm
This is another fine combo specimen on feldspar but with really different style... The highlight of this piece is an intensely colored, glassy and gemmy, doubly-terminated, blue aquamarine crystal that is 5 cm across. It has associated "rabbit ears" as accents on either side! As we have seen with other aquas in this lot, the aqua terminations are gemmier and slightly less intense blue than the centers which are less gemmy but a deeper blue. The main aqua crystal is pristine while the smaller ones have minor wear at the terminal edges. The overall aesthetics of this piece, the perch atop, are striking
