This is a Hydroxylapatite on Quartz from Sapo Mine, Ferruginha, Conselheiro Pena, Minas Gerais, Brazil. A tabular, sharp, almost hexagonal "Carbonate-fluorapatite" (now reclassified as hydroxylapatite) crystal perched on a cluster of flat Quartz crystals from the finds here in the end-1990s of a strange form of apatite that at first was called by at least 3 different names; and many said might even be a new apatite group species at the time, because of the combination of strange shape and color!
