Fluorapatite (historic locality)
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 2.8 x 2.3 cm
Ehrenfriedersdorf, Saxony, Germany
Ex. Kay Robertson
Excellent cluster of vitreous to pearly, euhedral crystals of Fluorapatite, on Quartz matrix. The largest crystal is 1.3 cm across, lustrous, and doubly-terminated. This is a classic old European locality, dating back hundreds of years. Crystals of such size, color, and aesthetics are extremely hard to obtain and only come out of old collections. Acquired from a "private sale" in 1966.
