Aquamarine With Schorl (Doubly-Terminated)
Miniature, 5.4 x 0.8 x 0.7 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Just a few millimeters shorter than the previous aqua but otherwise its mirror image, this specimen is also doubly-terminated with glassy luster, and gemmy tips. And it has the same rich, blue color - they literally are almost twins. Around the center is a cluster of splendent, black schorl crystals to .4 cm across. This is a floater, complete all around, with no visible contact save a small dab of attached feldspar in the verymiddle on bottom of one face.
