ID: CC21091
A delightful combination of well crystallised black lustrous Magnetite and buff to gooseberry-green Fluorapatite crystals embedded in a massive to fibrous creamy matrix of Tremolite.  This great miniature, from Malmberget in Gällivare, Lappland, Sweden, is rich in stepped octahedral black Magnetite crystals of up to 1 cm across and rarely a little larger, amongst which are prismatic Fluorapatite crystals.  The largest of these is 9 mm tall by 8 mm diameter, hexagonal in cross-section and with an opaque to semi-translucent prism.  The smaller Fluorapatites are transparent and of an acidic oily gooseberry green, a colour which sounds ghastly but looks beautiful!  A superb miniature.
