Item Description

A dramatic and rich matrix aquamarine crystal cluster from a NEW FIND in the Erongos. This striking piece is dominated by the well-placed 5.0 cm crystal. There are seven major crystals on the piece and at least that many more smaller crystals. The glassy crystals have fine rich blue color, water-clear to gemmy terminations and typical crackly bodies. Some of artistically set aquas on one side are enclosed by the feldspar and are doubly terminated, reaching 4.4 cm. The large crystal on this side is 4.0 cm. Complete all-around, the aquas are pristine. Modest pink feldspar fluorescence, as a bonus. DIRECT from the miners, as the iron oxides have not been cooked off of the piece. Here's your chance to get an outstanding, rich small cabinet matrix example with gemmy crystals from a NEW FIND! No new significant material has come out in at least 5 years. A stunnning major example from the find.
