Apatite-(Caf), Quartz
Himalaya Mine (Himalaya pegmatite; Himalaya dikes), Gem Hill, Mesa Grande District, San Diego Co., California, USA
Miniature, 4.1 x 2.5 x 2.2 cm
This is a beautiful miniature, for my taste the most elegant and best-colored Himalaya mine apatite I have seen. Although small, it's a real jewel for the locality, and something considered quite rare. Ex. William Larson Collection.
