This miniature of light lilac Fluorapatite crystals overgrown by a druse of transparent colourless Quartz crystals is from one of the most famous Fluorapatite locations in the world, Pulsifer quarry in Androscoggin County, Maine, USA. The quarry worked a granite gem pegmatite and although not worked any longer, occasional finds are still made by its owners, one of the last being a rich pocket of Aquamarine. This lovely specimen contains several hexagonal Fluorapatite crystals up to about 1 cm of a delicate lilac-purple softened by the sparkling druse of transparent Quartz.
