Aquamarine With Schorl
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 4.2 x 4.2 cm
Erongo Mountain, Usakos District, Erongo Region, Namibia
Three aqua crystals highlighted by the central robust crystal reaching 4 cm in length, are perched upon a natural pedestal of lustrous black schorl crystals to 2 cm or so. The aquas exhibit glassy luster and gemmy terminations with a rich blue color. Very minor edge chipping is admittedly present but does not detract from the overall visual quality of the specimen, though it is priced down a bit to make up for it (most pieces of any size in this pocket have such small dings anyhow) .
