LaMarina Mine, Boyaca Department, Colombia
Miniature, 5.1 x 3.1 x 1.2 cm
A complete floater crystal, terminated all around, of stunning rich pink apatite from this emerald district. These first started straggling out about 10 years ago in thumbnails and broken shards. This large miniature, though, is one of the finest I have yet seen. It has deep, rich color and a high glassy luster making them more colorful and impressive than most pink apatites. More translucent/transparent in person, too.
