Apatite- gem clear in Calcite (Ref: 19.1-290)

Liscombe Deposit, Monmputh, Haliburton County, Ontario, Canada
32mm x 24mm x 14mm
minID: Y2K-CQV
A killer thumbnail from the Liscombe Deposit in Ontario, Canada which in the seventies produced a few exceptional gem Apatites. Some of the best were in a contrasting light pink Calcite. This is a small, perfect example, doubly terminated (the terminations are typically a little rounded as seen) and fully transparent. The faces have a bright glassy luster and the color is vibrant. This does fit in a thumbnail box and is in perfect condition, unrepaired and better in person.
