Apatite CaF on Calcite - classic Canadian (Ref: 21.1-354)

Faraday Mine, Farady Township, Bancroft District, Hastings County, Ontario, Canada
91mm x 54mm x 29mm
minID: 0YP-AV3
A fine, large doubly terminated Apatite crystal sits on an orange Calcite matrix. The Apatite is well-formed with the typical slightly rounded edges and two different types of termination. Fluorapatites are fairly common in the scattered Skarns of this region but substantial crystals like this are not found very often. There are some minor contacts but overall this is a distinctive textbook form crystal with some areas of glassy luster. A modern classic.
