Apatite on Arsenopyrite
Panasqueira, Portugal
Miniature, 4.9 x 4.3 x 3.0 cm
This choice miniature features a 2 x 2 x 1.5 cm apatite crystal of blue-gray color, perched upon an extremely lustrous cluster of arsenopyrite. It is an extremely aesthetic arrangement and isolated apatites on such matrix are very rare for the locality compared to apatite on other types of matrix.
