- Pink Fluorapophyllite-(K)
- Samson Mine, St Andreasberg, Harz, Lower Saxony, Germany
- Miniature, 3.8 x 3.4 x 1.9 cm
- Ex. Kay Robertson
Dating back to the 1800's, this miniature is well representative of the classic find at the silver-producing Samson Mine, which was highly unusual and for a long time considered the best of species for apophyllite! The find contained highly unusual pink Fluorapophyllites, and the two main crystals here are well-formed and reach up to 9 mm. The luster is excellent and the terminations quite gemmy. A good, typical miniature for the locality.
