Apatite on Quartz With Siderite
Panasqueira, Portugal
Small Cabinet, 6.6 x 5.0 x 3.8 cm
A very attractive specimen featuring a 1.75-cm blue-purple apatite hanging off the side of a quartz cluster. The apatite is translucent and very lustrous. The piece is pristine on the front though it has a natrual break and partial reheal on the BACK of the larger quartz termination. The piece sits nicely on its own!
