Aquamarine With Schorl
Small Cabinet, 8.0 x 6.4 x 4.3 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia

This is an intergrown specimen of white feldspar, with aquamarine and schorl clusters. The aquas, to 3.25 cm in length, are glassy and gemmy, and are intensely colored blue. The large crystal sis 1.5 x 1.25 cm wide atop. The schorls are lustrous, black and reach 3.0 cm across. Minor wear to some of the aqua terminations is not significant but it is admittedly present, as with many in this pocket. Overal though, this presents a very fine, 3-dimensional display view with the aqua starkly contrastin gto the plate of schorls beneath
