Fluorite on Schorl
Erongo Mountain, Karibib
Erongo Region, Namibia
6.8 x 5.3 x 4.6 CM (cabinet)
price: $790
new year 2021

Colorful zoned Fluorite crystals are perched on a jumble of lustrous Schorl crystals from Erongo. Close exam of the Fluorites shows they are also included by dark tourmalines some of which have areas of transparency. The Fluorites have some spots of deep purple set in a light blue background. These crystals are somewhat etched and show some spinel twinning as well. The Schorl crystals are in two habits some with the fibrous habit faces and others with prismatic forms. All are quite lustrous and with two different termination types. Overall very esthetic and striking specimen from a find in 2018. The pegmatites of Erongo have given up some remarkable pockets over the years many of which were unique having unusual habits and forms not seen in any other. We have not seen any more recent finds of this style.
