Powellite (elongated crystal) with Quartz and Apophyllite
stock #13.1-137
Pandulena, Nashik District
Maharashtra, India
4 x 3.2 CM (miniature)
price: $360
Spring 2014

Sharp and very esthetic Powellite. The most sought after species from the Deccan Traps, the best Powellites all come from this general area in India, but good ones are still uncommon and often quite expensive. This is a super piece for the size and price. Neatly perched on a twisted arm of drusy quartz that also hosts a few bi-colored Apophyllites. The Powellite crystal is undamged with glassy luster and is very well formed. Distinct elongation on the C axis, the Powellite is 2 CM long.
Apatite- CaF exceptional royal purple
stock #A-148-099
Shigar, Skardu District, Baltistan
Gilgit-Baltistan, Pakistan
4.4 x 3.4 CM (miniature)
price: $4250
Spring 2014

From an amazing small find in late 2012, this apatite has the intense purple color usually only seen in the finest Pulsifer crystals. Aside from the intense color that can not be well captured in photos, the faces are glass like with gemmy areas. In fine condition especially for such a large prism. The intense color is confined to an outer zone, so looking down the termination it is possible to see inside to the crystal's grey-green interior. Far far better in person!
