Fluorite, Apatite-(Caf), Bertrandite
Aqshatau Mine, Aqshatau (Akchatau; Akschatau; Akchataul), Qaraghandy Oblysy (Karaganda Oblast'), Kazakhstan
Small Cabinet, 9.2 x 5.0 x 5.0 cm
This is a superb combination specimen from a small find made in the late 1980s. This is a great piece because it has good fluorite and good quality apatite, but also lots of it - making for wonderful color contrast against the crystallized matrix loaded with white bertrandite. Ex. Martin Zinn Collection.
