The Davib Ost Farm 61 at Karibib in the Erongo Region of Namibia has become famous for its numerous finely crystals pegmatite minerals, one of these being Schorl, the iron-rich Tourmaline member.  Beautifully crystallised, near-equant Schorl crystals are aesthetically individually scattered over a matrix of pure snowy white Feldspar matrix, formed as parallel aligned platy crystals for a perfectly contrasting background.  The Schorl prisms measure up to 2 cm across and are all double terminated with a superb glassy lustre.  A splendid example of well crystallised Schorl from Erongo.
