A castle-like cluster of unusual elongated apatite "blocks" are joined at caddy-corners to form this bizarre cluster. The longest crystal in the middle is 5 cm, and several have odd, hollow tips. The Sapo mine is currently an apatite collector's paradise with unusual growths and forms, such as this.
