Excellent cluster of sharp, attractive Fluorapatite crystals nicely placed on a matrix of lustrous white Albite. The Fluorapatites are nestled together nicely, and the main, 2 cm crystal sits up above the others perfectly. These crystals have sharp, tabular form, glassy luster on the front side, and are translucent with a beautiful forest green color. Other than some etching on the back side, the Fluorapatites are in excellent condition, and their beauty and quality show through. Both species have excellent fluorescence. Very choice and aesthetic example from this famous 2007 find. I would actually say that , for my taste, with the imposing sculptural form and fantastic top luster, this is among my favorite miniatures from the find.
