The green Erongo Fluorites have become famous in their own right, but to find them in such superb combination with the rare and desirable clear Goshenite Beryls, is a thing to behold. The Beryls range up to 2.2 cm, and the Fluorites about .8 cm, so the Goshenites rule the roost here. The luster on the Fluorites is silky, and they have the zoned coloration usually seen from Erongo. The Beryls have superb luster and are gemmy, with the classic tan-colored inclusions. Overall, this is a really neat combination piece - a quintessential Erongo specimen.
