- Panasqueira Mines, Covilha, Castelo Branco, Portugal
- Thumbnail, 2.7 x 2.0 x 1.8 cm
- Ex. Irv Brown
Although there are thousands of apatites that have come from this mine to the market over time, this one stands out as a fine thumbnail for the obvious reasons you can see in the photos. It has a 100% gem clarity, so much so that when looking through the middle you see the matrix behind it. Razor sharp, it is absolute perfection. The main crystal is 1.8 cm across. While others may have thickness, color, or some association, this has a profound impact, simply from the outrageous upright display of this pristine, gem crystal. Competitive level thumbnail.
