Apatite CaF (Fluorapatite) (Ref: 6.2-537)

Panasquieira Mines, Panasquiera Covilha, Castelo Branco District, Portugal
62mm x 47mm x 26mm
minID: RND-R4H
A main hexagonal Apatite crystal is well positioned on a matrix of Siderite and Muscovite. The Crystal displays well despite some bruises and a large contact on the backside. Close exam shows the many acicular inclusions of dark tourmaline and an unknown white mineral some of which are arranged in radiating patterns. Vivid yellow fluorescence with some color zoning is noted as well. Though not perfect as noted, as a result this is very affordable for the size and still looks like a more costly specimen.
