Apatite on Orthoclase

ID: CC73
A well formed, prismatic crystal of Orthoclase feldspar, coated in sparkling yellow Gilbertite Mica, and liberally scattered with small gemmy crystals of blue Apatite to 1mm, preferentially coating one face, with a large gemmy lustrous Apatite crystal to almost 1cm in length perched on another face. Very aesthetic piece.
