Fluorapatite & Albite "Sushi" from Colombia (Ref: TZ22-FLUALB)

La Marina Mine, Pauna, Boyaca Dept., Colombia
140mm x 32mm x 34mm
This cute combo specimen looks like sushi. The white albite looks like rice with a dark band of seaweed around it, and the pink fluorapatite looks like the salmon. The fluorapatite itself is extremely gemmy and has high luster. When longwave UV shines on it it glows an even brighter pink color.
