Bustamite is one of the few colorful minerals from Franklin that is found in reasonably good sized display specimens. This piece features several rather lustrous, thick, blocky, attractive pink colored crystals of Bustamite which are associated with blue Apatite and minor Calcite. The largest Bustamite crystal measures 2.7 cm long. These specimens are among some of the most easily recognizable and classic minerals from all of Franklin.
