This is a seldomly seen example of the alluring fluorapatites from Puiva that came to the market in the mid to late 1990s, very rare even at the time. An almost water-clear, gemmy fluorapatite is ringed by green chlorite. This is a nearly complete crystal with a single attachment point on the back that isn't obvious from the main display angle. It has extremely glassy faces on the pinacoids. From the collection of Shields Flynn, built up over many decades.
