Fluorapatite Albite
Foote Lithium Co. Mine (Foote Mine), Kings Mountain District, Cleveland Co., North Carolina, USA
40 x 32 x 48mm

A superb purple fluorapatite on an albite matrix from the Foote Mine in Cleveland Co., North Carolina, USA! This specimen features fine fluorapatite crystals, measuring up to 14mm – crystals over 1cm are exceedingly rare from the Foote. The fluorapatite has a nice purple coloration that contrasts nicely against the stark white albite. The Foote Mine began operations in about 1938. It is famous for rare phosphates and silicates, boasting an impressive list of over 150 species! In it’s prime, the Foote produced some of the finest fluorapatite and bikitaite in the world, along with many other minerals such as rhodochrosite, lithiophyllite, roscherite, fairfieldite, childrenite, etc. The mine has since ceased operations and is now flooded. Material from this rather obscure U.S locality is very hard to find on the market today, and typically consists of small micromounts. Ex. Jack Eaker, mine geologist. Comes with a custom acrylic base.
