Topaz with Quartz and Microcline
stock #19.1-248
Klein Spotzkoppe, Karibib District
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.7 x 2.3 x 1.6 CM (miniature)
price: $480


A super esthtic, pale blue gem Topaz on a twin Microcline base and a small Quartz crystal on the termination. In excellent condition as seen, this is an especially esthetic Spitzkoppe specimen, this locality has produced the best Topaz from Namibia. The Topaz has bright glassy luster and fine striations across the prism faces. A top notch display grade Topaz that is fully transparent and undamaged.
Boltwoodite on Calcite
stock #19.1-297
Goanikontes Claim, Goanikontes, Arandis
Erongo Region, Namibia
10 x 8.4 x 5.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $1650


An especially choice large specimen of Boltwoodite on a contrasting dark brown druse of Calcite. Protected by this shallow pocket, the radiating clusters of sharp bright yellow to orange needles are in excellent condition as seen. The radiating areas are about 1 CM across which is larger than typical as well. Special arrangements are needed in shipping or this can be delivered in person at a mineral show. Fine overall esthetics and rich density of Boltwoodite on matrix make this a top specimen for the specie.
Fluorite with Goshenite on Schorl
stock #18-AX-14-348
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
6.4 x 4.6 x 3.8 CM (cabinet)
price: $950
Spring 2019

Rounded complex Fluorite crystals are perched all over a jumbled mass of black Schorl. Some gemmy lustrous Goshenite (white) Beryl crystals are also present. The whole is especially esthetic and comes from a special find about 7 years ago. The major pockets found in the Erongos seem to be unique as each has an individual character and mineral mix that is different from other pockets. This is an especially attractive Fluorite specimen, far better in person, in fine condition and displaying well from any side or angle.
Apatite (fluorapatite)
stock #18.1-703
Okatjimukulu Farm 56, Karibib Region
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.1 x 3 x 1.7 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $360
Spring 2019

Flattened hexagonal crystal of deep purple zoned Apatite without matrix. From the finds several years back in the Karibib area of Namibia, this has an etched, frosted luster and good translucency. The crystal is not complete on all edges (typical for this find) but it is undamaged and shows complex recrystallization on some edges. The color is super intense in person, a very nice sizable purple Apatite.
Andradite var Demantoid
stock #18.1-695
Tubussis Farm 22, Daures
Erongo Region, Namibia
6.2 x 5.4 x 4.2 CM (cabinet)
price: $875
Dec 2018

A fine cluster of stacked Demantoid Garnets that contrasts well with the matrix. Excellent color and luster, the main Garnets are 2.6 CM tall and in fine condition. No damage seen even under high magnification. The matrix is a mix of Quartz, Calcite and Prehnite, this holds several smaller Andradites as well. These were big mineral news a few years ago when they were more available, these are now quite scarce.
SOLD Beryl var Goshenite- elongated crystals
stock #SOLD 17.1-537
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.6 x 3.1 x 2.9 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $0
Dec 2018

A superb toenail sized Erongo Goshenite. Perfect colorless Beryl crystals sprout from a Feldspar matrix in an attractive array. Excellent luster, clarity and with a slender habit all the crystals are terminated with the flat top and some tiny pinnacoid faces. An older specimen of a type almost never available. No damage at all, the specimen could be trimmed to a fine competition thumbnail but also looks great as is.
Beryl V. Aquamarine- unusual stepped termination
stock #17.1-536
Hohenstein Massif, Omaruru District
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.7 x 3.7 x 3.3 CM (miniature)
price: $1250
Dec 2018

A bizzare, unique, rare but attractive Aquamarine. From the Erongo Mountains, (Hohenstien Massif) this is a complete, doubly terminated crystal. The flat termination is typical although in this case the corners have modified faces. The real interest is the other termination that is a series of hexagonal steps that are perfectly centered like a stairway or a turret. The 4 main steps or platforms are very flat and some edges have a little etching, the whole is therefore a reversed scepter. Some minor contacting/chipping is noted but overall the condition is excellent. A good display piece but especially a great addition for a suite of Namibian/ Erongo minerals, Beryls or exotic crystal forms.
Fluorite -enclosing Shorl
stock #18.1-592
Erongo Mountain, Karibib
Erongo Region, Namibia
3.5 x 3.4 x 2.4 CM (small miniature/ large thumbnail (toenail))
price: $320
Dec 2018

The Erongo Mountains sometimes produce some very exotic and amazing Fluorites. This is an excellent example with stacked "melted look" crystals completely enclosing crystals and sprays of Schorl. The Fluorites are all Spinel twinned, the highly etched surface gives an unusual look and the whole piece is simply bizarre. In fine condition a neat small miniature.
