- Fluorapatite (fluorescent)
- Medina, Jequitinhonha valley, Minas Gerais, Brazil
- Toenail, 3.8 x 2.1 x 2.1 cm
Complete all the way around, this Fluorapatite from the famous Medina locality is stunning. The crystals are glassy and gemmy throughout, and the brilliance enhances the golden color. The largest crystal is about 2.7 cm, and the Fluorapatite has a rich, lemon-yellow fluorescence. This is an unusual habit for Fluorapatite, and I have only seen a few from this locality (all from one find in the late 1990s). A terrific toenail, with great aesthetics. Even better in person - trust us on this. It has a sick, amazing luster to it!
