Apatite With Siderite

ID: CC2008

A real sweetie of a specimen with pale blue, translucent hexagonal crystals of Apatite (to 15mm) exhibiting a vitreous lustre and sharp terminations.  Associated Siderite forms pale tan hexagonal crystals to 6mm, flecked with Pyrite; and small silky rosettes of Muscovite overgrow the Apatite. A pretty and compact miniature that displays well.
