Miniature, 3.4 x 1.8 x 1.7 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
This is a richly hued blue aqua with glassy luster and an extremely gemmy termination. The color is darker than most, here. The base of the crystal is a healed termination, thus making this crystal doubly-terminated. Typical minor chipping on the crystal edges of Erongo aquas has occurred but it does not materially affect the specimen. Small, splendent, black schorl crystals can be found at the base of the specimen. Dramatic, at a good price point!
