Aquamarine With Schorl
Small Cabinet, 6.0 x 5.1 x 4.2 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
A combination of smoky quartz and white feldspar forms the matrix of this specimen. Emplaced on the matrix are smoky quartz crystals, to 1 cm in length; and splendent, black schorls to 2.0 cm across. The essentially vertical aqua crystals, to 3.0 cm in length stand up from that pedestal. The aquas are glassy and gemmy with a rich blue color and transparent terminations. Very 3-dimensional and space-filling specimen
