Aquamarine with Smoky Quartz
Erongo Mountain, Namibia
Aquamarine, Smoky Quartz
Erongo Mountain, Erongo Region, Namibia
An outstanding aquamarine with smoky quartz from an exceptional pocket found in the Erongo Mountains of Namibia in 2014, which produced some of the darkest blue aquamarine ever discovered in the region. This particular specimen features 3 dark blue aquamarine crystals that have formed around a doubly-terminated smoky quartz crystal. The aquamarine crystals show gemmy terminal ends, while being held together in this highly aesthetic arrangement by microcline and siderite crystals. The specimen is complete all around and displays well from any angle. From my personal miniature collection. No significant damage.
