Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.1 x 5.0 x 3.0 cm
Emplaced on ivory-colored feldspar are lustrous, black schorl crystals, to 2.0 cm in length. Perched on the schorl are a few glassy and gemmy, intensely colored, blue aquas, to 4.25 cm in length. This is a piece with great contrast and super quality, totally representative of the contrasting association that will make this pocket remembered.
