Aquamarines from the Erongo Mountains of Namibia For Sale

 

Impressive blue aquamarine crystals from somewhere other that Pakistan. These are aesthetic, gemmy, high luster mineral specimens both on and off matrix from the Erongo Mountains of Namibia.  These aquamarine crystals from the Erongo Mountains of Namibia are a collector's dream.  Beautiful color and form make them highly desirable specimens.      

                                                           Beryl (variety Aquamarine) on Feldspar  

 

Aquamarines from the Erongo Mountains of Namibia are a relatively new item on the mineral market.  This grouping of fine miniatures shows what all the excitement is about.  I find these crystals more aesthetic and interesting than those from Pakistan.  They are gem grade in most cases with a more included appearance lower in the crystal.  In double terminated crystals both ends are often very gemmy.  Combination minerals include highly etched to well formed albite, schorl, quartz, titanite, zircon, fluorite and others.  These pieces are all damage free specimens which display very well.  None of these specimens are repaired.
