  • Beautiful aquamarine and schorl acquired a few years ago from Erongo, Namibia. The granites of the Erongo Mountains have produced spectacular specimens over the past decade, famous for the miarolitic pegmatites (crystalline irregular cavities or vugs) containing aquamarine, schorl, topaz, jeremejevite etc. This one a great example of sharp good colour aquamarine crystals associated with jet-black schorl (tourmaline group) intergrown and sitting on shattered contrasting white matrix. Both beryl and tourmaline are huge species in ‘unraveling’ and ‘deciphering’ the past histories of pegmatite formation and reveals our dynamic Earth is capable of a huge degree of chemical refinement. It is interesting that it has been noted that beryl is usually clearer (less turbid) in miarolitic cavities compared to massive pegmatite due to change in fluid medium from which they grow. These late stage fluids with fluxes can grow more transparent crystals with less fluid inclusions (and hence turbidity) and are the collectors dream! Ultimately a beautiful ‘end product’ of complex fluid evolution and interactions that finally crystallises into the many fine specimens we see today, each unique and telling its own story. Beautiful specimens and science! This was a perfect ‘locality’ piece, and the contrast stunning to look at. #gems #gemstones #mineralogy #minerals #crystals #crystallography #crystalgrowth #science #geology #chemistry #namibia #erongo #geochemistry #fineminerals #museumcollections #mineralmuseum #beautiful #contrast #rockhounding #pegmatite #nature #natural #instagood

  • Stable and high-quality images are vital to #SLAM. The leading image pre-processing algorithm of #INDEMIND STEREO #VISION #INERTIAL #MODULE can balance the exposure, enhance the #contrast grade, preserve the excellent shadow details. Which lead to an accurate, stable and high-quality input, as shown in the following pictures.
