||Apatite -CaF (Fluorapatite)
Cerro de Mercado, Victoria de Durango
4.9 x 3.5 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
Pre Holiday 2017
An older Apatite from Cerro de Mercado that presents a fine 3.5 CM gemmy crystal well exposed on matrix. This locale was a prolific source of these Apatites although most were much less clear than this and few on matrix. Rich yellow-green (asparagus) color. A choice piece in good condition that looks better in person. One old rehealed break is seen in the main crystal. A nice example.
