A very "juicy" cluster with about the richest blue color you can ask for in an Erongo aqua, moreintense blue even than pakistani aquamarine material. It has an inner brightness to it that intensifies the color, and extremely good lustre. VERY 3-dimensional in person....the pic does not quite convey how dramtic it is. 6.1 x 5.1 x 4.5 cm
