Mineral Specimen #1749    Goshenite with included Albite

Erongo Mountain, Erongo Region, Namibia

Goshenite is the clear, colorless variety of Beryl. On this specimen, the bottom two thirds of the main crystal has included Albite which gives it a brown color. The main crystal has a very high luster. The termination is flat except near the middle where it is recessed and composed of a number of small, hexagonal terminations. At the base of the Goshenite is a Quartz crystal which has Tourmaline both included in it and on its surface. Please note: the Tourmaline is not opaque black, but rather a dark muddy brown and transmits light which makes one wonder about the exact species. THe specimen is in excellent condition with no appreciable damage.
