Apatite on Quartz
Panasqueira, Portugal
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 5.0 x 3.2 cm
Two fat yellow apatite crystals to 2.3 cm are perched on a clear, lustrous quartz point...exceptional combo specimena dna a very rare example of yellow apatite from the locality. In person, they are colored pretty much as shown in the closeup photo...a beige-yellow color characteristic but quite rare from the locality.
