A continuous coating of Carbonate-rich Fluorapatite, formerly named Francolite, from Fowey Consols at Tywardreath in the St. Austell District of Cornwall, England. Fowey Consols lies between Lostwithiel and St. Blazey. The Fluorapatite forms as an uninterrupted crystalline druse of translucent cream to smoky grey crystals with a resinous to glassy lustre over a 1 mm thick crust of dull gold, micro-crystallised Pyrite. The underlying matrix is a mixture of milky white Quartz veinstone and Killas. This small cabinet specimen comes with the previous collector’s label dated July 1974.
