Fluorite and Beryl on Schorl Tourmaline

ID: CC1971

An explosion of lustrous black Schorl crystals accompanied by Fluorite and Goshenite. The Schorls form elongate crystals with lustrous well formed terminations at one end, grading into complex fibrous crystal with multiple parallel terminations at the other end. Measuring to 3cm long, they are intergrown at all angles. Several dominantly octahedral modified Fluorite crystals have grown on the Schorl, translucent with pale greenish centres and deep purple near surface colouration. The largest 'feature' crystal measures 2.1cm width, and all have stepped growth features. A single Goshenite crystal with a smoky Quartz companion is attractively positioned near the main Fluorite crystal. The Goshenite is glassy with an internal phantom, measuring 6mm. A super display from the single pocket find in the Erongo Mountains, discovered in mid 2012.
