Fluorapatites with the famous 'Pulsifer purple' color saturation are always coveted, and this large 2.5 cm cluster has just that color. It has very good luster, and a nice, moderate fluorescence. Such Fluorapatites are really only seen in a handful of specimens, around the world, despite the abundance of Fluorapatite at so many localities.
