Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Miniature, 5.6 x 5.1 x 3.6 cm
Glassy and gemmy, intensely-colored aquamarine crystals to 5.2 cm in length are intimately associated with lustrous black schorl, in crystals to 2.7 cm in length. The largest aqua is also doubly terminated. The large aqua is pristine as are the two smallest aquas, so the piece overall is in remarkably good condition. It has very elegant aesthetics, emphasizing the contrast of form and of color
