Fluorapatite and Quartz
Small Cabinet, 6.5 x 2.8 x 1.6 cm
Foote mine, King's Mountain, Cleveland Co., North Carolina

A very good and attractive matrix specimen of fluorapatite from the famed Foote mine in North Carolina! Dark purple-gray, moderately lustrous, short hexagonal barrels of fluorapatite adorn the contrasting off-white drusy quartz matrix. There is good separation between the crystal clusters that enhance the aesthetics of the piece. Ex. John Lindell collection with label.
