Erongo Mountain, Usakos, Erongo Region, Namibia

Lustrous black schorl crystals on feldspar. This piece was given to me by a childhood acquaintance that I reconnected with after 50+ years at the most recent Tucson Show. What a surprise - thanks Kevin! Because of the contrast, it was a difficult specimen to photograph and retain detail in the feldspar as well as the schorl.

That is a difficult specimen to photograph. Like at a wedding black tuxedo and white wedding dress. Good picture. Kevin Downey is from Massachusetts.

Thanks Don. Yes, Kevin and I grew up in the same town in Massachusetts. We both admired the same minerals on display at the Berkshire Museum.
