ID: CC20306
This spectacular jet black Schorl Tourmaline measures 20.2 cm long, formed from stacked sub-parallel Schorl clusters, each partly splayed outwards.  The overall appearance is organic, composed of divergent acicular fronds and plumes.  It is from the granite pegmatite found on Davib Ost Farm 61 in the Erongo Region of Namibia, almost midway and a little north of a line drawn between the capital Windhoek and Walvis Bay.  This large cabinet specimen is almost damage free and glistens with a bright glassy lustre.  A Namibian Schorl which is sure to make a statement in any display (or drawer!).
