Turquoise, Apatite-(Caf)
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.4 x 2.5 cm
Cananea, Mun. de Cananea, Sonora, Mexico

A very strange and showy pseudomorph from this new find down in Mexico. This crystal is relatively sharp, so far as they go, faithfully showing apatite crystal form even though the crystal is now completely replaced by carving-grade turquoise.
