Carbonate-Fluorapatite on Feldspar
Sapo Mine, Goiabera, Minas Gerais, Brazil
Large Cabinet, 19.0 x 9.1 x 5.9 cm
A hefty specimen with one side loaded with HUGE, deeply-colored apatites reaching in one crystal to almost 4 cm (and several to 3 cm). These crystals are all aligned along the best presentation face of the piece and form a dramatic view. BETTER In PERSON! It is only relatively cheaper than other big pieces with big crystals, because of the size and weight. It could be trimmed, probably, to improve it, and I will do so and raise the price myself if it does not sell at some point.
