This specimen is priced in US dollars, all other prices are approximate.

ID: CC2178

How is this for a rare and unusual combination from Panasquiera; a elongate section of translucent flattened Quartz has perched on it a well formed semi-translucent dark blue-green Apatite crystal measuring 30mm x 15mm as well as an individual lustrous golden yellow Chalcopyrite crystal measuring 25mm x 20mm! The Quartz is 're-healed' on the reverse side. An unusual combination - yet so perfectly positioned and proportioned - choice!
