ID: CC20291
A charming small miniature with glassy, teal-blue Fluorapatite crystals to 6 mm long, sitting on near perfectly developed Orthoclase feldspar crystals and micro-crystals of Mica and acicular Schorl (Tourmaline).  The specimen is simply labelled as “Cornwall, England” but appears likely to be from either Megiliggar Rocks by Breage near Helston or Colcerrow quarry at Lanlivery.  The Fluorapaties are semi transparent and form excellent small hexagonal prisms.  A little beauty!
