Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 8.2 x 7.7 x 5.3 cm
Perched on lustrous black schorl crystals, to 3.0 cm in length, are two glassy and gemmy, intensely-colored aquamarine crystals to 4.0 cm in length. The largest aqua and the largest schorl are both doubly terminated. Minor wear to the terminal edges of one aqua is relatively insignificant but a few broken small crystals in the middle need to be noted. Still, a very attractive piece, with stark contrast and unusually good color for the locale.
