IMCN37 Aquamarine

One of the most interesting new things to come from this mine has been a very small quantity of aquamarine crystals. Usually, when I think of places where aquamarine occurs, I think of pegmatites-- not an iron mine situated in a skarn body. For what I understand there was one decently sized pocket of this material some months back-- and most of the pieces were pretty bad. The crystal is double terminated. These look a lot like some of the aquamarines from Erongo.
