Apatite CaF (Ref: 13.1-162)

Anemzi Village, Midelt Province, High Atlas, Morocco
65mm x 54mm x 0mm
minID: PKY-YC8
From a new small find about 60KM from Imilchil this was my selection as the very best specimen. Fine, sharp "asparagus" Apatites scattered on contrasting pink feldspar crystals. Well prepped and trimmed aesthetically, the large Apatite is 2.3CM standing and super gemmy. Nearly all Moroccan Apatites have easily noticeable damage, cloudy areas or other "issues" This is not at all like that, and is unusual for the attractive matrix which very few examples have. We have a few other examples from this find in the 200-300$ range that are good, but this specimen is exceptional!
