Item Description

An UNUSUAL, doubly terminated and pristine schorl crystal from the Erongo Mountains of Namibia. This weird, ultra-lustrous, tapered crystal is SUPERBLY etched, comparable to the best Wolodarsk heliodors. The pinacoid termination has an amazing, etched, chevron pattern. The other end is so severely etched, that the crystal is hollow for about 4.0 cm. A very showy and strange schorl.
