Erongo Mountain, Namibia
Erongo Mountain, Erongo Region, Namibia
A stunning aquamarine cluster from a one-off pocket, discovered in 2014 in the Erongo Moutains of Namibia! This pocket produced some of the darkest blue aquamarine every found in the region. This specimen features 3 crystals of dark blue, gemmy aquamarine crystals that have formed together in a highly aesthetic arrangement, and are held together by a mass of minute smoky quartz and biotite crystals, as well as microcline feldspar coated in a fine quartz druse. The middle aquamarine is partially included with fine needles of black tourmaline, while the main crystal at the top of the specimen is gem nearly all the way through. A very dramatic miniature from this now classic locality! From my personal miniature collection. No significant damage.
