Aquamarine With Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 4.6 x 4.5 cm
Two crystals of glassy and gemmy, intensely colored, blue aquamarine, to 3.75 cm in length, are aesthetically perched on a matrix of ivory colored feldspar and lustrous, black schorls to 3.0 cm across. Although there is a small bit of edge wear on some crystal edges, the scuptural and textural quality of this piece is superb and balances that little detraction at the right price.
