Apatite -Caf (Fluorapatite in epitaxial stacked form)
stock #16.1-656
La Marina Mine, Pauna
Boyaca, Colombia
4.1 x .9 x .7 CM (miniature)
price: $850
Winter 2016-17

Super form and esthetics for this distinctive style apatite! Rich pink Apatite crystals are in stacked epitaxial arrangements. From a small recent find at La Marina emerald mine. The last time this style of Apatite was found was over 8 years ago. We had the good fortune to purchase a pocket at that time and several of those specimens were later illustrated in the Mineralogical Record, Lapis special edition etc. This small lot from the new find is of the same quality and habit as the earlier, now classic and unavailable material. The display face of the specimen is in fine condition, there is a clean contact on the reverse side and a break at the base where this was removed but not visible in any normal display angle. This is the best we have seen of this style from the new find.
