Aquamarine With Schorl
Miniature, 4.8 x 4.8 x 3.5 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
This aesthetic aqua miniature features a large vertical crystal and another veering off the left side at a dramatic 45 degree angle. The aquas are particularly glassy and gemmy, with a rich blue color - especially for this locality. The largest aqua measures 4.5 cm in length. A few Tiny wilbers on the edges of the aqua terminations are hardly noticeable and the piece is really as near to pristine as you can normally ask. The sliver of white feldspar matrix also hosts splendent, black schorl crystals to 1.5 cm in length....a wonderful contrast characteristic of this pocket from august of 2009
