Description
Locality: 
Tubussis Farm 22, Dâures, Erongo Region, Namibia
Size Range: 
Small cabinet (7-10 cm)
Size: 
9 × 7 × 4 cm
Description

Very nice and showy combo of several prismatic aquamarine cr ystals (terminated) with good blue colour, transparent to translucent, with deep black schorl crystals and some feldspar with a fine contrast.

Although the termination of the large crystal is not perfect (small mousebite) it is a good quality display specimen and increasingly rarer to get from this meanwhile older find at the Erongo mountains.
