Superb clear colorless beryl (Goshenite) crystals are scattered on a series of radiating sprays of shining black Schorl. The overall effect is striking and the beryl crystals are perfectly clear. Goshenite is surprisingly rare as almost a;ll Beryl has some color. The condition of this is good overall but a few Schorl have tip damage that is seen in the photos. The Beryl however is all perfect and with glasslike luster. Classic and attractive Erongo material.

A wonderful sculpture of well formed crystals in fine condition. An excellent Erongo specimen that looks great on all sides. The Fluorites are zoned, complex translucent to transparent purple crystals. The Schorl is very lustrous and shows several types of terminations. A sprinkling of tiny Quartz crystals adds the final touch. A very good value for the quality.
Bright gem clear white Beryl crystals are studded on a 3 dimensional array of shiny black Schorl crystals. In excellent condition, this is a fine Erongo specimen and far better in person. 2012 vintage, this material has not been seen since.
A super specimen from Erongo which displays very well and has remarkable esthetics. The black Tourmaline has brilliant luster in person and has a prismatic termination at the top and a lower termination of the fibrous type on the bottom. The contrast with the bi-color green and purple zoned fluorite gives this piece its great esthetics. In excellent condition damage wise, the photos do not do this one justice!
A really fine, rare Erongo specimen with textbook spinel twin form and great esthetics! Better in person by far, this piece is nicely composed with a divergent group of Shorl Tourmaline that host and penetrate into the Fluorites. The Fluorites are spinel twinned and show delicate zoning. These are stacked like a shishkabob on the Shorl. It is easy to see the dark Tourmalines inside the Fluorite. Undamaged and displays great, an excellent piece for the Fluorite cabinet or in an Erongo suite.
