Aquamarine With Schorl
Small Cabinet, 5.7 x 4.6 x 2.8 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Emplaced on a small matrix of white feldspar is a cluster of splendent, black schorl crystals to 1.5 cm across. Aesthetically perched on and leaping up from the schorl are glassy and gemmy, richly colored blue aquas, to 5.1 cm in length. The terminations of the aquas are transparent and they are nearly pristine, with just a few small dings. The piece is very 3-dimensional and elegant
