Item Description

This is a rare, very fine CABINET goshenite plate from the Erongo Mountains in Namibia. These have smooth, glassy faces with crackly interiors, and not a bit of blue color to be seen; they are true goshenites (a lot rarer than aquamarines). The biggest crystal here is 2.5 cm long. This is an excellent and very rich plate, nicely accented with a couple of lustrous, black schorl crystals. Valued at $1000
