A complete, sharp transparent alpine style Apatite prism loaded with Byssolite needles that give the transparent colorless crystal a deep green hue. Very similar in form and look to Austrian and other European cleft Apatite. There is no damage and the whole is a floater with no point of attachment. Some of the edges show very complex multi faced crystallization and a few conjoined smaller crystals.
