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

ID: CC5284

Abundant well formed tabular crystals of light violet to colourless crystals of Fluorapatite measuring to 1.3cm have formed over an early deposition phase of Quartz. A later phase of sugary colourless-white Quartz druse has mostly covered the crystals of Fluorapatite. Rounded clusters of inter grown cubic purple Fluorite crystals are a late formation after the Quartz, along with tiny Chalcopyrite crystals, and an undetermined yellow-brown mineral. A natural parting on the specimen has crystals of Quartz and Fluorite spanning across it. A fine example of Fluorapatite possibly from the Sauberg Mine.
