Fluorapatite on Chlorite and Quartz

ID: CC5258

Clusters of well formed tabular hexagonal crystals of mostly gemmy colourless to white crystals of Fluorapatite. Crystals of Fluorapatite measuring to 9mm have formed over a crystalline bubble green Chlorite with white Quartz, and some metallic yellow Pyrite. A fine pleasing example of Fluorapatite possibly from the Sauberg Mine.
