A terrific ex-matrix miniature of highly reflective, lustrous glassy Fluorapatite, forming flattened hexagonal crystals of between 1 and 2 cm across flats and uniformly about 7 mm thick.  From Puiva Mount in the Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug of Russia, also known as Western Siberia, semi-transparent pale sky-blue Fluorapatite crystals grow parallel to one another forming a beautiful stepped mound.  Scattered all over the specimen are micro-vermiform (worm-like) meandering crystals of dark chloritic-green Clinochlore.  A terrific miniature and a fine example of Fluorapatite.
