This matrix specimen is a cornucopia of Yukon area phosphates. The dominant mineral is fluorapatite in glassy, colorless crystals, to.7 cm across (rare for the locale). Golden amber crystals of siderite are also evident in crystals .2 cm in length. Blackish green crystals of kulanite, a barium, iron, manganese, magnesium, aluminum phosphate, to .5 cm across are also present. Finally, there may be micro crystals of brazilianite present.
