ID: CC6447
A rare combination specimen of Fluorapatite on sulphides from the Julcani District in Peru.  White crystals of prismatic Fluorapatite measuring to 2 cm with a termination of tinted mild apple green are developed over a contrasting metallic grey crystallised mix of Tetrahedrite and Galena on a light metallic golden yellow matrix of Pyrite. Very few specimens of Fluorapatite on sulphides entered the market from this mining district and this is a well-priced and beautiful miniature.
