Clementine II pegmatite, Okatjimukuju Farm 55 (Friedrichsfelde Farm), Karibib District, Erongo Region, Namibia

This page is currently not sponsored. Click here to sponsor this page.

Well-zoned pegmatitic dyke hosted in calc-silicates rocks (foot wall) and dolomitic marbles (hanging wall) of the Upper Precambrian Damara sequence.
Located 18 kilometers ESE of Karibib, located in the SE area of Okatjimukuju 55, approx 2 km from the perimeter with Okongava Ost.

Zonation of the pegmatite:
- Wall zone: aplite (muscovite, quartz).
- Outer intermediate zone: aplite gives way to coarse-grained quartz-alkaline feldspar-muscovite association.
Microcline perthite towards the core.
- Intercalated zone: Early space filling with quartz-muscovite-feldspar pegmatite rich in beryl, columbite, amblygonite-montebrasite, apatite (Mn) and Fe-Mn phosphates.
Quartz-albite-muscovite rock (zonation of the pegmatite).
- Inner intermediate zone: Red microcline perthite (crystals up to 1 meter long) rimmed by muscovite. Quartz + muscovite in interstices.
- Replacement unit: pink/grey Li-mica with petalite, albite and microlite.
- Quartz core (milky quartz).
